No fowl play right here.
Long Island cops flew into motion Saturday after 4 ducklings fell eight ft by way of a grate right into a storm drain close to Old Sunrise Highway and Sunrise Highway in Massapequa.
Their anxious mom was dangerously pacing throughout visitors in a determined try to rescue her crying infants when Nassau County police arrived, the division mentioned.
After discovering that the sewer grate was unmoveable, the quick-thinking cops ushered the matriarch to security earlier than taking part in a sequence of mom duck calls they discovered on YouTube to coax them to security, responding officers advised the Daily News.
The six cops used the soothing sounds to lure the ducklings from storm drain to storm drain alongside a path they mapped out that may result in a close-by reservoir.
After cleansing the infants, police reunited the infants with their quacking mom in Carmen Creek, a small physique of water behind Alfred G. Berner Middle School.
”They swam away upstream in direction of her voice, and that was the final we noticed of them. They swam very purposefully,” responding officer Marisa Caroselli, 48, advised the paper.
