Hong Kong cries fowl as giant rubber duck deflates

- +

The giant inflatable rubber duck which has attracted tens of thousands of visitors since it sailed into Hong Kong two weeks ago was reduced to a sad deflated disc on Wednesday in the city's harbour. 

The 16.5-metre-tall inflatable Rubber Duck art installation lies deflated in Hong Kong's Victoria Harbour on May 15, 2013. Organisers said the inflatable Rubber Duck created by Dutch artist Florentijn Hofman had been deflated for scheduled maintenance, but visitors who had made the trip to see it were left disappointed.

Duck mania has gripped Hong Kong since its arrival, with locals and tourists flocking to catch a glimpse of the 16.5-metre-tall (54-feet) artwork, conceived by Dutch artist Florentijn Hofman.
