Talk about some lucky ducks!!

A mother duck and her five ducklings were trapped along the inside center wall on Interstate 40 eastbound in Mt. Juliet Friday afternoon when some considerate cops came along to save them.

The Tennessee Highway Patrol and Mt. Juliet Police Department worked together on the rescue, actually stopping traffic on the interstate for about three minutes so they could usher the momma duck and her babies across the road and to a nearby pond.
