20 ducklings pulled from storm drain

Posted: Updated:
FLORIDA - Firefighters for a Florida fire department used a little ingenuity and a lot of patience when a family of ducks fell into a storm drain on Monday. 

There was no way to open up the area and get down to the ducklings which were about 2-3 feet below ground.  So crews decided to float the ducks to safety.  They used tank water to fill the drain. As the water rose the ducks floated toward the grate.

They then used a pair of tongs to reach in and pull the ducklings to safety.  What was thought to be about 10 ducks ended up being 20 ducklings.  All were saved and were not injured.
