GLEN ROCK, Pa. (AP) — A Pennsylvania woman faces charges which includes risking a catastrophe after she jumped into a raging creek to "save" a couple dozen wild ducks.

Southern Regional Police in York County said Justina Laniewski went into the Codorus Creek in Glen Rock on Monday evening, and her 4-year-old started to follow her.

A neighbor grabbed the child, but it took eight firefighters from a nearby station to rescue the 41-year-old Laniewski from neck-high waters. She was also charged with reckless endangerment, disorderly conduct and public drunkenness.

Court records said Laniewski told police she slipped and fell into the water.

Southern Regional Sgt. Darryl Smuck said a breath test showed Laniewski's alcohol level was more than twice the legal limit for driving. A phone listing for her couldn't be located.
