8 trapped ducklings rescued from storm drain
STORRS, Conn. (AP) — Firefighters have rescued eight ducklings from a storm drain on the University of Connecticut campus.
The school says bystanders walking near the chemistry building called the fire department after noticing a mother duck and two ducklings crying outside the drain on Sunday evening.
The school says a firefighter attached to a safety rope used a ladder to reach six of the eight ducklings and bring them out.
The other two had made their way down a drain pipe. Crews lured those two out using a cord attached to small dish filled with Rice Krispies.
The school says the duck family was reunited and has returned to a nearby lake.
