Firefighters Rescue Ducklings in Stamford

Making saves is what firefighters do, whether the call is for a human victim or one of the feathered kind.

On Thursday, firefighters from Engine Company 5 assisted Stamford Animal Control Officers on Summer Street in Stamford in the rescue of nine ducklings from a catch basin, according to the Stamford Fire Department website and Facebook account.

The mother duck was nearby, watching her babies as they were lifted to safety.

The crew from Engine 5 then provided a safety escort for the ducks as they made their way back to the Mill River.
