However, it’s not yet clear how long the family of ducks were wandering outside of the park.

A heart-warming video that has gone viral on social media shows police officers in New York rescuing a dozen of lost ducklings and reuniting them with their mother. The incident which happened over the weekend went viral after Manhattan Bird Alert shared the story along with captions and videos on Twitter, winning the hearts of netizens.

Going by the visuals shot by David Barrett, founder of Manhattan Bird Alert, the ducklings had wandered off leaving their mother and the Central Park into the portion of the Upper East Side in Manhattan. Their misadventure ended the dozen lost waddled in Lexington Avenue.

The video posted on the microblogging site shows one of the officers walking with the ducklings in the carrier through the streets, followed closely by their watchful mother. The officer can be seen turning and pausing from time to time to let the mother catch up and also shows them crossing the busy Park Avenue, among other streets. The officer then tipped the carrier by Conservatory Water in Central Park, reuniting the family. However, it’s not yet clear how long the family of ducks was wandering outside of the park.
