An employee at the Moe's restaurant on Fleming Island dove under a car stopped in the road in front of the store to rescue a duckling as patrons and other employees held back traffic.

Dakota Linton emerged from under the car on Country Walk Drive cradling the ducking.

Diane Delage, a customer, took the duckling to Hidden Hills Animal hospital, where it will be held until Bird Emergency Aid and Kare Society (BEAKS) could pick it up to be rehabilitated.
