    I think in a world of bad news, things like this are a ray of sunshine.

    From the LA Times:

    Wayward ducklings plucked from storm drain.

    In a rare rescue operation in Garden Grove on Wednesday, animal control officers came to the aid of about a dozen ducklings stuck in a storm drain.

    The drama unfolded at Lampson Avenue and West Street.

    Rescuers arrived to find the mother duck frantically pacing around the drain opening.

    Officers were able to scoop the 14 ducklings into a box, which was lowered through a manhole.

    The mother duck followed animal control officers to a pond where she was reunited with her babies.


    And now the video of the event
