GLEN ROCK, Pa. - A Pennsylvania woman faces charges that include 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 toddler started to follow her.

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

Southern Regional Sgt. Darryl Smuck says 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.
