A woman had rounded up the mother duck and eight ducklings. The mother duck and one duckling were sheltering in a shop while the others were in a bag. 

When the firefighters go inside the shop to get the mother duck put into a box, she flies out of the door and someone tries to catch her as she flies through. She lands on top of a building. 

The duckling which is in the shop with its mother also runs around the shop as they try to catch it but they catch it in a green bowl.
