Sometimes we all just need to believe there are still good people doing good things in the world, and this video does just that. The Costa Mesa Fire Department was called to 3303 Hyland Avenue in Costa Mesa at around 8 p.m. last night, according to the fire department’s Twitter account. Some scary sawing ensued, but sure enough, as this ABC7 video shows, the baby ducks were safe and sound some 30 minutes later.

Now, good night and sweet dreams.

Oh my goodness!!! Costa Mesa FD rescued a family of ducklings trapped in a storm drain 🐥 @CMFD_PIO @ABC7
