London, April 1 (ANI): A duck survived a 400-mile long trip from Belgium to Britain while being stuck behind the radiator grille of a truck.

Driver Paul Murphy assumed that he had killed the bird when it hit the truck in Veurne, Belgium.

He was surprised to see the bird alive when he reached back home and lifted his bonnet at a local service station.

"All of a sudden I saw this green head. I couldn't believe it," the Daily Express quoted him, as saying.

After taking help from a friend, the driver pulled out the bird which had a bleeding beak and a broken wing.

The duck, now named Plucky, is recovering well and will hopefully be transferred to a wildlife rescue facility. (ANI)
