A bunch of kids were out rock climbing at a local beach when they spotted a mother duck and her eight ducklings waddling along the rocks. When the mom decided it was time to jump down from the rocks and back into the ocean, four of the ducklings followed her — but the other four got stuck and were left behind.
After seeing the ducklings get separated, the kids, all between the ages of 9 to 11, sprung into action. They quickly located two of the lost ducklings and brought them down to where their mom and siblings were waiting in the ocean. By the time they located the last two ducklings, though, the little duck family had already swum off, leaving the pair all alone. The kids waited nearby for a little while to see if the mother duck would come back for the last two ducklings, but when she didn’t, they decided they just couldn’t leave the ducklings all alone.
