MENTOR, OH (WOIO) - A group of ducklings found themselves in trouble on Friday. Luckily, firefighters were there to save the day.

Mentor Fire responded to a call from a Dairy Queen employee, who noticed the ducklings fell down in a storm sewer in the parking lot. Firefighters put a ladder down in the 8-foot deep sewer, but still couldn't reach the ducklings as the distressed mother duck stood close by.

A Dairy Queen employee fetched a pool skimmer, which provided enough length to make the rescue, and the duck family was happily reunited.
