Firefighters Rescue 13 Ducklings From Storm Drain

By Robert Paul Reyes

"A trio of Seattle firefighters said they rescued 13 ducklings that apparently fell down a storm drain while walking with their mother.

They placed the ducklings in a bucket and released them in the pond across the street," Deputy Fire Marshal Don Barberie said. "The mother duck, who had been flying around watching the rescue, returned to the pond to care for her ducklings.`"

Some would argue that this story doesn`t qualify as news, but we need a relief from the depressing and sordid articles that dominates media coverage.

The title pretty much lets you know what this article is all about, if this is not your cup of tea you don`t have to click the link.

This incident restores my faith in humanity, it`s good to know that Seattle firefighter respect all life, and that they would take time to save 13 ducklings from a storm drain.

Friday the 13th turned out to be a lucky day for the ducklings and their mom. I hope all of my readers enjoy a safe Friday the 13th!
