Lucky ducks amaze in heart-stopping highway crossing

A mother duck and her trail of ducklings are lucky to be alive after a harrowing highway crossing in Toronto back in May.

The drama was caught on film by a helicopter crew who spotted the brave family approaching several lanes of an interstate.

Cars and even semis zoomed by, but that didn't stop the mother and her little followers from beginning their heart-stopping journey across multiple lanes of traffic. Some little ducklings are seen being swept off their tiny feet as cars breeze by.

Miraculously, the lucky ducks make their way to the other side seemingly unharmed, though most probably a little shaken.
