LEVELLAND, TX (KCBD) -

The Levelland Fire Department and the Levelland Animal Control rescued an injured duck from a frozen pond in Levelland Tuesday morning.

Captain Lance Edwards with Levelland FD says he believes a passerby saw the duck and called Animal Control.

He said the duck was frozen in the ice and the rest of the flock was in the unfrozen part of the pond.

Captain Edwards says officials with Animal Control called the fire department for assistance.

The call came in around 10:15 a.m. and it took about five minutes to rescue the duck.

Captain Edwards said the duck broke free from the ice itself, but couldn't get off the frozen part of the pond.

The injured duck is with Animal Control because of its injuries.

Captain Edwards has been with Levelland Fire Department for nine years.
