An eagle-eyed traveler spotted something unusual–10 ducklings in the Norfolk Airport storm drain! Apparently, while their mother was able to pass over the grate, they all fell in when they followed.
I missed this story when it first came out, but through some cute-animal-binge-viewing today, came across it.
While their concerned mother paced nearby, airport workers opened up the grate and pulled them out with a net.
Here’s a video of some of the coverage of when the ducklings fell in.
I’m so happy the airport crew took rescuing them seriously!
Here is also a series of posts from the Norfolk International Airport. How adorable.
All of the ducklings were unharmed. And absolutely adorable.
