‘Quack’-thinking saves family of ducklings

23 Nov 2020, James Ireland

Metro staff rescued a dozen ducklings that were spotted wandering on the tracks near Cheltenham Station on Saturday afternoon.

An eagle-eyed passer-by saw the feathered family and phoned Metro’s customer call centre.

Metro’s teams flew into action, stopping trains on the Frankston Line so that station staff and Authorised Officers could safely carry out the fluffy rescue mission.

The ducklings are now safe and in the hands of wildlife carers.
