Elderly Couple Guide Family of Ducks Across Madrid Street

An elderly couple was recorded escorting a family of ducks through a crosswalk in Madrid, Spain, on May 3.

Footage recorded by Sonia Cabeza shows a senior couple coaching a family of ducks across the street, guiding them with their hands and parcels in order to keep the flock within the crosswalk.

In the end, the mother duck and her eight ducklings successfully waddled onto the sidewalk. The moment stood out to Cabeza not only as heartwarming, but also as unexpected.

“The surprising thing is that in my neighborhood, there are no lakes or rivers,” Cabeza told Storyful. Credit: Sonia Cabeza via Storyful
