CENTENNIAL, Colo. (CBS4) - A brood of ducklings gave some South Metro firefighters a little run for their money on Tuesday. A couple handfuls of the little ones fell into a storm drain at Jersey Street and Irish Place.

Once they got the storm drain grate moved out of the way, one firefighter managed to wrangle a few of the ducklings into a bucket. They were reunited with mom anxiously waiting in a lawn nearby.

But, one duckling made a break for it down a pipe, so firefighters used a video of the sound of ducklings to coax it back out. After a little time, firefighters were able to get the whole family back together.
