Fort Myers, Florida (News-Press) -- An officer with the Fort Myers Police Department recently encountered some unusual suspects holding up traffic.

Ten tiny ducklings were attempting to cross the road but got stuck near the overpass at Colonial Boulevard and U.S. 41.

Officer Glenn Eppler's dash camera caught the incident on video, but the rescue proved to be difficult as it wasn't easy getting the ducks in a row.

A citizen jumped in to help as the birds chirped in a fuzzy frenzy. Ultimately the ducks were taken to a grassy area and reunited with their mother.
