Spec-quack-u-lar video: Watch an Excelsior man rescue ducklings from sewer

Updated: June 24, 2019 04:46 PM

A mother duck lost her ducklings when they became trapped at the bottom of a sewage grate Sunday.

But an Excelsior man stepped in to save the day.


Linda Schwefel says her husband, Scott, heard the mother in distress and realized what was going on just outside of Frattallone's Hardware Store on Highway 101 and Highway 7.

"It took about two hours to rescue them all," she noted.

Scott put his phone down to record the event, and his son edited the video to make the two-hour process easier to view. 

Watch the video box above for the full rescue mission.
