What happens when a group of ducklings get trapped under a grate?

A momma duck tried her best, but couldn't figure out how to get her babies.

Then the Loveland Fire Rescue Authority came to the rescue.

Video posted on Facebook and YouTube shows firefighters trying a crowbar, then heavy equipment, before they finally succeeded in getting all 10 ducklings out.

The rescue happened, appropriately enough, on Mother's Day.
