This is the touching moment a duck family with offprings are walking around almost empty streets during Italian lockdown.
The bizarre scene was captured by the Facebook user Danilo Ragona in a fountain located in the city of Turin, in the northern Italian region of Piedmont.
The video shows the duck being followed by a group of offsprings walking around the fountain of the city.
At a certain moment, pedestrians wearing the face masks are seen guiding them to the sidewalk, as they had jumped to the road.
Finally, the ducks are seen lifted by the pedestrians into the fountain with water.
The video was shared with the message “the nature during coronavirus. What an emotion to see this duck family approaching to the fountain with water, but also even more beautiful to see people stopping to help them”.
The video was pretty commented by netizens such as ‘Maddalena Colangelo’ saying “what wonderful! solidarity and nature. Thanks for sharing”.
Danilo also commented that the drivers stopped or avoided them while being on the road and it was touching too.
‘Elisabetta Amantini’, said “so cute”.
