Toronto firefighters pulled off an adorable rescue operation on Thursday when they reunited three ducklings with their mom.

The firefighters responded to the corner of Bathurst Street and Patricia Avenue after a Good Samaritan heard cries from the sewer grate and spotted a distressed mama duck lingering nearby.

The crew quickly scooped the three ducklings out and reunited them with the mother and siblings nearby.

Toronto Professional Fire Fighters’ Association shared a video of the rescue.
