SLIDELL, LA (WVUE) -

Corps De Sapeurs Pompiers – a fire service, or fire brigade. They are widely considered silent heroes among the community … Even the duck community.

A poor mother duck was aimlessly walking through a Winn Dixie parking lot in Slidell. But her true aim was to find help.

The hen’s ducklings were trapped in a storm drain.

Slidell Fire Department Engine 14 arrived to help.

Firefighters had to push ducklings from one train to another one for the captain to help save them.

All 12 were reunited with mom. Mamma duck did not comment to media, but she did say "Quack" as her family waddled away together.
