Ducklings Rescued from Storm Drain

High school students in Leonia, New Jersey noticed that eight ducklings had fallen into a storm drain. Their anxious and agitated mother stood nearby, unable to help. They summoned the police, who blocked off the flow of water, then reached down into the drain to scoop up the ducklings with a net. North Jersey reports:

To catch the remaining three, Garris said they called in Police Officer Erik Goodell, who at 6’6” and with “very long arms” was a natural for this unique rescue operation. The officers pried open the grate of the adjoining storm drain and used a cardboard box to block the entrance to the tunnel, said Garris.

After doing so, the officers were able to reach down and grab the last three ducklings, said Garris.

The officers then motioned the ducklings toward their mother, who had been hiding in some bushes during all the commotion, said Garris.
