Oof. We’ve seen ducks down before, but not quite like this. China Daily explains that the duck was deflated due to high winds on Thursday, after Beijing Weather Station issued a “blue alert.” Organizers are perhaps afraid it’ll be blown ashore, then stolen? No word on when it’ll be back up.

Until then, enjoy this funny image:
