Dozens help pull 11 ducklings from storm drain

LEXINGTON, KY (AP) - Stormy weather might be meant for ducks, but storm drains aren't.

When 11 ducklings fell through the grates of a Lexington storm drain on Monday, dozens of people spent four hours rescuing them.

The drain in an office park became the focal point when workers spotted a duck under a parked truck. Betty Sophin, an office worker in the park, tells WKYT-TV the duck was atop a storm grate. Below sat 11 stranded ducklings.

Sophin said police, road crews and even animal control were called in to help.

Video shot by WKYT-TV shows the happy duck family waddling away afterward.
