The Saturday morning duty crew were called to duckings that had fallen down a cesspit. An anxious mother waited on the outcome.
A team of firefighters in Auckland, New Zealand, banded together to help a distraught mother duck after her ducklings fell down a drain. The team of heroes formed an assembly line to pull the tiny babies out while the notably anxious mom duck watched.
Footage captures the adorable moment the ducklings are winched from the drain in front of their mother. Three members of the Titirangi Volunteer Fire Brigade, formed a production queue to pull the ducklings out while one filmed the heroic rescue.
