FLORENCE, Ky. - A Florence woman took on the temporary title of "duck rescuer" Wednesday after saving six baby duckling trapped inside a storm drain.
Meghan Tower says she was pulling into work Wednesday morning at the Florence Beckfield College campus when she noticed her co-workers standing around a storm drain.
Several feet below, were six scared baby ducklings. Their mother flew overhead, helpless.
When Tower and several other co-workers and students tried catching the ducks, the chicks would scatter off into separate directions into three different pipes.
Tower says she got the idea to try a duck calling app from the college librarian who told her about them.
"I would play the duck call and they would start chirping and come out and then we just starting throwing them all into the box," Tower said.
The entire rescue took three hours, she said.
All the babies were safely rounded up and returned back into a nearby pond where miraculously the mother duck swooped in to be reunited with her babies.
