Giant inflatable duck rolls away

Somehow an inflatable duck got loose and made it's rolling debut down the street in Des Moines, Iowa Thursday.

The duck - named Quacky- belongs to YESS, youth emergency services and shelter - which provides shelter for youth in crisis or in the juvenile court system.

The organization holds an annual fundraiser called the duck derby with about 42-thousand rubber ducks.

Organizers say the duck got a head start but no worries, Quacky didn't ruffle any feathers - and they want everyone to know "Community support is the wind behind his wings."
