MYRTLE BEACH, SC (WMBF) – When something fowl is going on, you can count on WMBF Photographer Jonathan Dick to set it right!

Jonathan was out and about, shooting video of today's job fair at Food Lion, and he noticed several ducklings on the road, unable to jump the curb to reach Mama.

He donned a pair of gloves and carefully boosted the little ones up to reach their mom.

It may not be the biggest news story of the day, but it made us smile, and we wanted to share it with you!

Interesting to note: while we've all heard that a mother will abandon the babies if a human touches them, this myth has been roundly debunked by both Snopes.com and Scientific American. Still, better safe than sorry!
