MYRTLE BEACH, SC (WMBF) – Two ducklings stuck in a Myrtle Beach storm drain Monday were rescued by Myrtle Beach Fire Rescue and reunited with their family.

“Today our guys went above and beyond to perform a daring rescue to reunite a mother with her children who got trapped in a storm drain,” states a Facebook post from the department. “Now this was a family of ducks, but it doesn't change the fact that these heroes took the time out of their day to help a family in trouble.”

Somehow, two ducklings became trapped in the storm drain, and someone passing by saw them. The department’s Chief-in-training, Chief Pratt, was stopped by the concerned citizen, and he called in for back-up.

The engine crew arrived with Captain Eells, and they “proceeded to do what they do best,” the post states.

Both the ducklings were rescued and reunited with the family in the nearby pond.

“Great job to all of those involved,” the post concludes.
