Fire crews from Maine, NH rescue duck from frozen river

The Associated Press

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.
