Firefighters went underground to save some ducklings in distress in Rancho Cordova.
The ducks were found Sunday in a storm drain on Sun Center Drive, according to Metro Fire of Sacramento. The mother duck was peering anxiously into the drain, where her babies needed a helping hand.
Firefighters opened the grate, entered the drain and lifted the little ducks to safety.
