adorable animal story alert

Via the dcist:

An AP story is making the rounds of the broadcast outlets (WTOP has some of its own reporting as well) about how D.C. firefighters rescued a bunch of baby ducklings from a storm drain near 16th and U Streets NW early this morning. Neighbors called the fire department after the mama duck alerted them to her babies’ predicament with her incessant honking. From WTOP: “Three firefighters from Engine Company No. 9, which is right next to the alley, went into action, pulling off the drain’s cover and getting out a bucket. One held the legs of Sgt. Michael Engels as he reached down and scooped the swimming ducks into the bucket.” Pretty cute. All the little ducklings are safe and sound and have been turned over to animal control.
