Trapped in a sewer: police officers help swan chicks
Rottenburg (dpa / lsw) – Police have freed six swan chicks from a side canal of the Neckar in Rottenburg in the Tübingen district. A pedestrian had previously reported that the birds could not leave the canal on their own. As the police announced on Sunday, a floating metal pipe blocked the swan children from entering the main stream. According to the information, the officials helped them on Saturday with boards and a snow shovel over the pipe. The chicks were then able to return to their parents in the Neckar.
