Black swan and cygnet cross Australian freeway

The swans had become stuck on the inside of the Kwinana Freeway on the Narrows Bridge during the morning peak traffic.

Anthony Mearns, who captured the footage of the swans, said a tow truck driver stopped and put his lights on to warn oncoming traffic, before shepherding the swans across the multiple lanes.

The tow truck driver, with assistance from another motorist, managed to guide the swans off the road in front of halted traffic.
