Awwww… South Charleston firefighters rescue baby ducklings from drain

On Tuesday, a Good Samaritan reported several baby ducklings were stuck in a storm drain as the mother duck frantically paced up and down the street trying to will her babies to come out. To the rescue came the South Charleston Fire Department, and can there be anything better to start your day than checking out this most adorable rescue of even the smallest residents in the area?

According to the South Charleston Fire Department Facebook page, the baby ducklings were stuck in a storm drain located at Riverwalk Plaza near the Krispy Kreme and Burger King.

Once the mother duck spotted the arrival of the firemen she quickly fled the scene. And then the work started. One of the men climbed down into the drain and one by one, the tiny fluffy peepers were rescued and carefully placed in a cardboard box.

The babies huddled together until all were rescued and then released. Moments later their mom returned and escorted her babies across the parking lot and into the river.

Stop by their Facebook page and thank these wonderful rescuers.
