Saint Petersburg, Fla. -
Firefighters from Stain 9 responded to a call from Mitchel McNeally about trapped ducklings in a storm drain in St Pete today saving 9 ducklings while their mother watched nearby.
The storm drain was located behind the Old Navy store at Tyrone Square Mall, which is where the firefighters removed the drain cover and entered the murky pit to scoops up the lost and helpless ducklings who had apparently fallen through the cover's openings.
Nearby the mother was visibly upset and stood watch until all of her flock was rescues.
The ducklings promptly ran to their mother who gave the a good look over. The family then went on its way.
