Police rescue five ducklings from storm drain in Nova Scotia

They fight crime, the find missing kids and sometimes they save ducklings.

The Truro Police Service in Nova Scotia posted a pair of videos of the daring duck rescue, including one of Constable Wendy Cormier, who jumped into a storm drain to pluck five young ducks up to street level.

Call it Truro’s Mother’s Day miracle.

It was a dirty job, but Const. Cormier just the person to hop into action.

Police also thanked the town’s public works department for their assistance, too.

The ducklings were placed in a box and happily waddled over to their anxious mother.

A truly happy ending to this duck tale.
