Firefighters rescue ducklings from drain in San Diego area

CHULA VISTA, Calif. (AP) — Firefighters in Southern California have rescued 13 ducklings from a storm drain.


The San Diego Union-Tribune reports churchgoers called police Sunday afternoon after hearing the ducks chirping from the drain in Chula Vista.

Fire officials say the ducklings might have fallen through holes in a grate while walking through a parking lot.

Firefighters used a net to lift the birds out.

Chula Vista Battalion Chief Rich Brocchini says rescuers found the ducklings' mother, but she flew away when they tried to capture her to relocate the family.

He says the ducklings will be taken to the San Diego Humane Society's Project Wildlife where they will be raised until they can survive on their own.
