After they dutifully followed their mama across a street, four ducklings got trapped when they fell into a storm sewer in Bettendorf, Iowa.
Neighborhood families were able to rescue 3 of the 4 babies with a net, but needed to call out the professionals to get the last one.
The city’s Public Works crew devised a plan to send the final baby back toward the net with a burst of water from upstream.
The emergency inspired the neighborhood to work together, with four families joining the effort.
