Ducklings rescued from DC storm drain

WASHINGTON (WUSA9) - When a storm drain got between a momma duck and her babies, a team of D.C. rescuers were there to save the day.

It happened near 12th Street and Maine Avenue in Southwest Monday afternoon. The momma was standing nearby. Her little ones were nowhere to be seen, but they could be heard down in the drain.

Crews from DC Fire and EMS, along with Animal Control, DC Water, and Metropolitan Police came to their rescue.

One by one, they plucked the ducks out of the drain. And almost like a scene out of a movie, the momma duck and her flock ran toward each other in a happy reunion.

DC Fire shared the adorable moment on Twitter.
