Duck who lost his feet to frostbite waddles once again, thanks to 3D technology

Phillip the duck is back waddling after getting fitted with prosthetic feet.

A DUCK WHO lost its feet to frostbite is back up and walking thanks to 3D technology.

Phillip the duck was rescued by Wisconsin woman Vicki Rabe-Harrison and fitted with prosthetic feet after she enlisted the help of a local school with access to modelling software.

Rabe-Harrison told WBAY-TV that she was planning to put Phillip down when a teacher returned her message to say he was making them a new pair of flippers.

Take a mid-morning break and watch Phillip waddle again.
