WEST JORDAN, Utah — Staff and patrons at the West Jordan Library helped a mother duck reunite with several ducklings who were stuck down a storm drain.

Staff at the library saw several of the ducklings fall into the storm drain Saturday, and they rushed back to the area with additional help along with buckets and a ladder.

The group was able to rescue seven ducklings, who were happy to rejoin their mother and two siblings. The library staff said the ducklings seemed stressed but otherwise OK after their ordeal.
