I put the pump in the duck pond last night to pump it out. It's messy in there without our filters and things so I have to change the water once in a while. I totally forgot to turn the pump off and this morning it was down to about 2 inches of water in there and of course the ducks promptly jumped on in. I couldn't get them out so I put the water hose in it and set the timer for two hours thinking that once the water was high enough they'd walk out on the little plank that's in there for that purpose. Nope. My wife went out to check on them at 11:30 or so and found one dead and the other close to it. She says the water was high enough for them to get out so I don't know what happened. She thinks hypothermia. I could just scream.
