Heartwarming videos have appeared of nine adorable ducklings reunited with their mother after falling into a sewer.
The adorable scene was captured in the city of Barcelona in the eastern Spanish province of Catalonia.
According to local media, the fire brigade received a call from a local man who heard the ducks cry from a sewer on the side of the road.
Pictures show the firefighters lying on the road reaching inside the open hatches to pick up the ducks.
The fire brigade posted the photos and video to their social media account and said, “After working for a while, we were able to rescue the nine little ducks one by one, who were scared and disoriented.”
More pictures of the rescue show that the little ducks are lifted out of the gutter with a can to pick them up, and another photo shows the nine ducks in a large carrying case with a bowl of water.
The images, shared with the caption, “Do you want to see them reunited with their mother?”, Show the moment when the ducks are released.
Two officers leave the kennel in an open area with long grass.
When they run away, a mother duck suddenly appears excitedly to the ducklings.
The officer says ‘look watch’, while local residents and firefighters in the background can be heard cheering and clapping for the ducks.
The applause continues as the ducks run after their mother.
An excited firefighter says, “Look, watch them all go after her.”
