Firefighters rescued a family of more than a dozen ducks after they fell into a sewer drain at the high school in Vernon Hills, authorities said.

The Countryside Fire Protection District responded around 4 p.m. Sunday to Vernon Hills High School, 145 Lakeview Parkway in Vernon Hills, for a service call.

A family of ducks was stuck in a confined space on school grounds, according to the fire district.

“We are now able to release the names of the wonderful little waterfowl saved by the duty crew: Donald, Daffy, etc.,” the district said.

Firefighters worked to remove the sewer grate after the ducklings fell through it and had no way out.

Crews pulled a baker’s dozen of ducklings to safety and reunited them with their mother, the fire district said.

Gurnee Police Department community service officers Hector and Kathy responded to the call and it took them nearly two hours to get all of the ducks out of the sewer.
