FORT MYERS, Fla.- A police officer in southwest Florida had to deal with an unusual reason for traffic congestion.

Ten ducklings were trying to cross the street in Fort Myers but got stuck. The News-Press in Fort Myers reports Friday that Officer Glenn Eppler's dash camera caught the situation on video. A citizen also helped the chirping birds who were all aflutter.

In the end, they were taken to a grassy area and reunited with their mother.
