VIDEO: Quack Rescue Team: Cops Save Duckling Family Trapped Down A Sewer

Chicks reunited with mom after police fish them out of a manhole. 

A video shows ducklings stuck down a sewer drain at an apartment complex run to their mother after being rescued.

Two officers from the Henrico County (Va.) Police Division, along with the Animal Protection Unit, retrieved the ducklings on May 5.

In a video posted by the Henrico Police, an officer pulls out a special catcher with a long pole from the sewer and brings it over to the grass.

There, he tilts the catcher and the ducklings come out, running to their quacking mother patiently waiting on the side.

In total, nine ducklings were rescued.
