PLAINS, Ga. (WALB) - WALB’s first “Good News” story takes us to Plains where a Fishing Rodeo was held at the Jimmy Carter Welcome Center.

The Air-Evac life team of Americus noticed a duck that got hooked in a kid’s fishing lines.

Paramedics Justin Garmon and Scott Smith sprung into action and saved the duck.

Our Americus, GA, crew helped this little guy while at a fishing rodeo event.
