While this doesn’t rank highly in the ‘breaking news’ category, you have to admit, Michael Williams was definitely thinking outside of the box when he helped in this rescue mission.
Williams, a resident of Windsor, Ontario, saw a mother duck and two ducklings walking down the street, when suddenly the pair fall into the storm drain, landing in the water about a metre below.
“She started to walk away and we heard noise coming out of the sewer,” Williams told CBC.
He contacted the City of Windsor on his smartphone, a BlackBerry Z10, and while he waited for the maintenance crew to arrive, searched for an app that might help.
“I thought maybe there was an app for duck calls. Thankfully, they have an app for everything and it worked out,” Williams said. “I held it up to the sewer and the two ducks just came out.”
