Fonda Baker, a resident at Olympus Hillwood Apartments, says those firefighters are heroes after rescuing eight ducklings from a storm drain Friday morning.
Around 6:45 a.m., Baker saw a family of ducks crossing the lawn when eight of the nine ducklings fell through a grate over the storm drain. She called the complex’s courtesy officer, Officer Todd, and the local fire department.

The firefighters successfully rescued seven ducklings while the captain came up with a plan to save the remaining duckling using a fire hose and swimming pool net.
After a two-hour rescue effort, the firefighters successfully reunited all eight ducklings with their mother and sibling who waited nearby.
