Ducklings saved from North White Plains storm drain

NORTH WHITE PLAINS -

Good Samaritans are being lauded for rescuing 13 ducklings who fell into a North White Plains storm drain.

Witnesses say a mother duck was walking all 13 of her ducklings when they fell through the grates of a storm drain in the parking lot of a North White Plains Stop & Shop.

The good Samaritans says they had to jump into action, opening the grates and going into to the storm drain. "Everybody pitched in and it worked out, and, well, we got ducklings saved," says Nick Delory.

Delory says the mother duck flew away during the rescue and never came back, so now the baby ducks are headed to a farm upstate where they will be cared for.
