Firefighters rescue a tiny duckling trapped in a drain in the most adorable animal rescue yet


Fire crews stepped in to free a wandering duckling after it fell into a drain.

Hereford and Worcester Fire and Rescue Service were called to Droitwich on Wednesday by a passer-by when the little duck slipped through the roadside metal bars.

A video posted to YouTube shows a member of Droitwich fire station's White Watch tenderly pull the tiny animal out of the water-filled drain before releasing it into a nearby waterway.
