PEABODY, MASS. (WHDH) - This happy reunion in Peabody was all possible thanks to some big-hearted firefighters who helped a dozen ducklings who became stuck in a storm drain.

Peabody Fire Lt. David Limongiello and firefighters John Spofford and Derek McCrea helped pluck a dozen ducklings from a storm drain Monday and reunite them with their “frantic” mother, according to a post on the department’s Facebook page.

“Every firefighter wants to make a ‘grab,’ this afternoon … we made 12!!!,” the post read. “Might not be quite as glorious .. but you can’t tell momma duck that.”
