Ducks And Ducklings Cross Pennsylvania Ave. With Some Friendly Assistance (VIDEO)

Posted: Updated:

WASHINGTON -- If you're feeling down in the dumps, just watch this video of some Washingtonians helping a duck and her ducklings cross Pennsylvania Avenue downtown.

Prince of Petworth posted the aww-inducing video on Wednesday, along with the submitter's comment:

Thought it was really cool how we, complete strangers, came together and stopped traffic to help a momma duck and her ducklings cross Pennsylvania Ave.

But that's not all. Another video has surfaced, via the Political Carnival, of security personnel outside the White House helping ducklings from the sidewalk, through the fence and onto the White House lawn.
