There’s nothing worse than getting stuck. You feel like you’re in a never-ending trap that you just can’t get out of. For one little duckling, he thought this could be the end – until some unlikely heroes came to his rescue.

At the Blijdorp Zoo in the Netherlands, a little duckling managed to get itself stuck in a shallow pond. Thankfully, two creatures were on their way to help out. No, not humans, two hippos save a duckling.

Yes, these gentle giants came to the little bird’s rescue when they could see how distressed it was as it flapped and jumped to try and get out of the water. It didn’t take them long before they came to the rescue.
