Firefighters Rescue Duckling From Storm Drains

While wrapping up a long day of work in the Leisure World community, firefighters came upon a young duckling who had fallen into a stormwater drain. Firefights are not ones to duck out of their responsibilities so the crew went into action to save this young animal.

Rescue missions generally require heavy firefighting gear and professional equipment, however, compassion, a gentle hand and wash basin were the lifesaving equipment necessary to save this unlucky duck.

The rescue happened after the crews had visited over four hundred homes to install smoke alarms and replace batteries as part of the department’s community risk reduction initiative.

The duck reportedly is doing well.
