Life savers

Members of the Westland Public Safety Department responded to an unusual, but frantic, call for rescue last week when a resident noticed that a mother duck had lost her entire brood to the holes in a sewer grate. Trying to waddle across, the grate had swallowed the tiny ducklings who were frantically quacking for help. Officers arrived on the scene and took meticulous care to bring all 12 of the newly-hatched ducklings to ground level for a reunion with their ever-patient and grateful mother.
