SARASOTA, Fla. (WWSB) - The Suncoast is full of wonderful people and some of that kindness was caught on camera in Sarasota.

The appropriately named Melissa Leduc captured multiple bystanders holding up traffic on US 41 to allow a mama duck and her babies to cross. LeDuc says several shop owners and bypassers blocked the roadway to allow the mama duck, daddy duck and 12 babies to make it safely to the other side.

The heroes are shown spreading their arms out and acting as a cheering squad for the ducks.

LeDuc told ABC7 that the crossing guards were a success. Nicely done!
