Suffolk County Police officers along with Babylon Highway Department employees rescued a family of ducklings that had fallen into a storm drain in Lindenhurst on Friday, May 10.
First Precinct officers responded to South 15th Street and West Hoffman Avenue at approximately 7:15 a.m. after a 911 caller reported ducklings had fallen into a storm drain while the mother duck stood at the top of the drain. The officers notified the Emergency Service Section and Babylon Highway Department.
Babylon Highway Department employees removed the grate from the top of the drain and Emergency Service Section Officer James Brucculeri climbed into the drain and rescued the six ducklings.
The ducklings were reunited with their mother once removed from the drain.
