  • A quacking result: Duck ringtone saves ducklings from storm drain
    A duck call ringtone has helped a Louisiana firefighter rescue six ducklings from a storm drain. Even with the realistic, reassuring quacking sounds coming from his mobile phone, it took Cody Knecht about 90 minutes to catch the first four baby mallards in the south-east Louisiana community of Slidell. Chad Duffaut of St Tammany Fire District said Mr Knecht rescued the others after giving them about an hour to calm down, then all six ducklings were reunited with their mother in the canal behind a home, where people reported seeing the babies go into the drain. The firefighters are clearly becoming a quack team. This is their second duck rescue in a week - they extracted one from a chimney on April 19.
