WEST CHESTER TOWNSHIP, Ohio — Strap in for some cute.

No, sorry. Not just some cute. All of the cute.

You may have already seen — because it has gone viral — that a local woman, identified in a Facebook post as Hannah, started shooting video when she said she spotted a mother duck quacking around the parking lot, with no ducklings to be found.

After a bit of investigation, Hannah discovered multiple ducklings trapped several feet below a drainage gate, at which point she called the West Chester Fire Department. Firefighters arrived soon to retrieve the ducklings.

As of Thursday evening, the video, posted Wednesday by Free Soul Designs, had nearly 30,000 views and had been shared more than 250 times.
