Burst giant yellow duck back on show in Taiwan
TAIPEI (AFP) - A giant yellow inflatable duck which exploded on New Year's Eve returned to a Taiwan port on Friday after it was repaired and cleaned, organisers said.
Hundreds turned out in Keelung on the north of the island to welcome back the 18-metre-tall duck following two days of maintenance after it burst and deflated into a floating yellow disc on Tuesday.
It was the second time that a replica of the bath toy had burst while on show in Taiwan. The duck exploded just hours before crowds gathered to count down the new year.
"The warmest welcome for the little yellow duck to come back to Keelung port. I am very excited and happy all over again," fan Mandy Liu wrote on a Facebook page created for the Keelung exhibition.
