Glen Rock - A US woman faces charges that include risking a catastrophe after she jumped into a raging creek to "save" a couple dozen wild ducks from the superstorm.

Southern Regional Police in York County said Justina Laniewski went into a Pennsylvania creek on Monday evening, and her toddler started to follow her.

A neighbour grabbed the child, but it took firefighters from a nearby station to rescue Laniewski from neck-high waters. She was also charged with reckless endangerment, disorderly conduct and public drunkenness.

Southern Regional Sgt Darryl Smuck says a breath test showed Laniewski's alcohol level was more than twice the legal limit for driving.

A phone listing for her couldn't be located.
