I believe that rescue stories are not just about saving animals and bringing them a better future. They showcase the brighter side of humanity as people try their best to help animals in need, even tiny creatures like ducklings.
These nine ducklings couldn’t protect themselves in a heavy storm, and they were taken away by the flood. Their mom duck was only able to keep several babies safe under her wings, but helplessly watched her missing ducklings. They ended up getting trapped in a storm drain, and there was no way the mom could take them out on her own.
The only thing she could do, however, was to ask for help from humans. She kept searching for passersby, quaking to them as she hoped someone would eventually pay attention to her crying. No one knew how long she had been crying, but certainly, she’d never give up until someone offered help. Well, when it comes to their babies, all mothers can try everything to ensure their kids’ safety.
Fortunately, a good Samaritan noticed the presence of the helpless mom duck and decided to leap into action. And, it didn’t take long for him to understand the reason behind the animal’s cry for help. He soon contacted rescuers to rescue the stuck ducks.
Phoenix Fire department was also called out in the mission to help open the drain gate. When the gates were removed, the rescue team did what they have to do: save the lives. The moment nine baby ducks were taken out of the drain was captured in a heartwarming video. Let’s watch it.
Given a chance to reunite with her babies, the mother duck was happy and delighted. We are happy, too! Because these animals are all taken to safety. Thank the rescuers and the Phoenix Fire department for their meaningful job!
