Kudos to Kent firefighters, who rescued 13 tiny ducklings that had fallen into a storm drain and couldn't get out.
A passerby stopped by Station 74 on Kent’s Easthill fire station Tuesday to report the babies were stuck in the drain.
Captain Jim Merritt and Firefighters Steve Smith and Brent Flatness responded to the call.
As the mother duck flew above them, watching them work, Smith and Flatness were able to reach into the drain and rescue the ducklings.
They placed the ducklings in a bucket and released them in the pond across the street. The mother returned to the pond to care for her ducklings.
