TOLEDO, Ohio (WTVG) – A mother and her children were reunited Monday morning thanks to the quick action of Toledo Fire & Rescue personnel.
Motor 25 responded to the corner of Berdan and Maxwell, where a mother duck was upset and her six ducklings were stuck in a storm sewer. A neighbor gave the firefighters a lacrosse stick, which shoveled the ducklings out of the sewer.
According to a TFRD social media post, mom and babies were last seen waddling into an area that luckily had no sewers.
