Adorable Ducklings Rescued from Airport Storm Drain

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.
