Thursday, May 8, 2014, 3:44 PM - A group of orphaned ducklings have "adopted" a man as their caretaker.

A tragedy has evolved into a happy ending for a group of 13 orphaned ducklings.

Matthew Sargent recently uploaded a video of his neighbour Rick being followed around by the tiny ducks. The video has garnered more than 300,000 views in four days' time.

"The neighbor rescued 13 duck eggs when the mom was killed," Sargent writes on his YouTube page.

"He put them in his incubator and they all hatched and imprinted on him."

It looks like these lucky ducks are in good hands.
