CAPE CORAL, Fla. - Two ducklings in distress are now in good hands after being rescued from a storm drain by Cape Coral police officers.

The police department released body cam footage of the rescue on Wednesday morning.

Officers said they were walking out to their vehicles in the parking lot of the police department when they heard "pleas for help, but not the human kind."

Officer Ian Ross, Lt. Donald Donakowski, and K-9 Officer Stephen Scrobe then found a duckling trapped inside a storm drain, police said.

Officer Scrobe jumped into the drain, only to find a second trapped duckling. Both were safely removed.

A mother duck was nowhere to be found, so officers said they took the ducklings to the Viscaya Prado Animal Hospital for treatment.

They've since been turned over to the Clinic for Rehabilitation of Wildlife.
