Having lifeguards on hand at the beach or a busy swimming pool is an absolute must that can save lives.
You never know when tragedy can strike, and someone could need help while in the water.
Even if you aren’t a trained lifeguard, you could still find yourself having to aid in an aquatic rescue if need be.
One of the last things you would expect to have to do as a lifeguard though is to save baby ducks.
That’s just what one man had to do though after a mother duck and her ducklings took shelter in the heated baby swimming pool in his neighborhood one rainy day.
The problem is that while the mother duck was able to get out of the pool, the ledge was just a bit too high for her babies to follow.
In a video shared to YouTube, you can see the man wading in the baby pool trying to help out the ducklings.
Whenever he approaches them, they rapidly swim away from him though.
With a clever bit of engineering though, he is able to create a small ramp for the ducklings using a pool chair.
The baby ducks are able to swim over as their mother paces at poolside above them, and walk right up the floating chair to safety.
Once they are all out of the water, safe and sound, they form a lineup and follow mama on out through the nearby fence.
