A couple ducklings were saved after they’d fallen into a storm drain

The Victoria Police Department and the Esquimalt Fire Department worked together to save some tiny Greater Victoria residents on Tuesday.

A local resident had noticed a couple ducklings disappear into a storm drain on Craigflower Road and called for help.

Officers from the VicPD Esquimalt Division and the Esquimalt Fire Department worked together to fish the ducklings out of the drain and reunite them with their mother.

The ducklings posed with officers and firefighters for a couple photos before waddling off.
