A Central Florida man is gaining national attention for his soft hands and duck-saving skills.

A video posted Sunday shows Eric Pelno of Pasco County catching 15 to 20 ducklings as they fall off a 30-foot ledge, one after another, at Busch Gardens Tampa Bay.

The video says Pelno went into "beast mode" when he and his girlfriend noticed the baby ducks "falling from the sky" as they sought to follow their mom.

The Facebook post says one duck had a broken leg, but all of them survived the tumble thanks to Pelno's quick thinking and generosity.
