HUNTSVILLE, Ala. - If you need any perspective on just how dry it's been in the Tennessee Valley lately, take a look at this video.

A duck got stuck in a dried up pond in the Big Cove area of Huntsville.

A couple that lives near the pond heard the duck's cries for help and sprung into action.

John Kvach put on some old clothes and got in the muck - up to his waist - and freed the duck.

It's actually his second bird rescue. About six years ago, Kvach got entered the same pond to rescue a stuck heron.
