Secret Service rescues stranded ducklings (VIDEO)

WASHINGTON – The Secret Service saved an entire family Thursday. Never mind that it was a family of ducks.

A mother duck hopped a concrete barrier to pass through a fence to the White House, NBC Washington reports, but her ducklings weren’t big enough to follow.

Seeing the commotion, two uniformed Secret Service officers lifted the ducklings through the fence.

Watch the video below to see the full rescue mission.
