(Newser) – A Pennsylvania woman who apparently decided that wild ducks needed her help to escape superstorm Sandy's wrath was arrested after jumping into a fast-moving creek to "rescue" a group of 20 or 30 birds, WGAL reports. Her four-year-old child started to follow her and was grabbed by a neighbor, but it took eight firefighters to rescue the woman from the neck-high creek.
