Mother's Day rescue just ducky

Firefighter Paramedic Brandt Jorgenson was part of the team that rescued eight ducklings rescued from the bottom of a storm drain at Paseo Santa Cruz and Camino Del Lago on Mother's Day morning when firefighters and Pleasanton police answered a resident's call for help. While the apparent mother duck was pacing around the top of the drain, firefighters from Engine 94 of the Livermore-Pleasanton Fire Department gained access to the drain and safely removed the ducklings. Battalion Chief Joe Testa said the crew then took all the ducks to a nearby park for a quacky Mother's Day celebration.

The story about the 8 ducklings rescued from a storm drain was uplifting. It is wonderful to read a GOOD story among the many negative news reported.
