ROLLINSFORD, N.H. — Firefighters have rescued a duck that was frozen to the ice in a New Hampshire river.
Some people out walking their dog in Rollinsford saw a mallard frozen to the ice on the Salmon Falls River and called the fire department.
WMUR-TV reports that crews from Rollinsford and South Berwick, Maine, came out with a boat and a man with a cold watersuit to free the duck. It took about 40 minutes.
The ice was so thick the firefighters had to break it around the duck. A big ice cube was stuck to its wing.
The duck was recovering at a nearby veterinary office.
