According to the post, the Mama duck had nine little ducklings following her when she decided to stop traffic and lead her flock across the street. The path she chose was not a good one, as the family had to cross a drainage ditch.

Unfortunately, six of the little ones fall into the ditch and were stuck. Luckily, the officers were able to help with the rescue of three of the little ones and reunite them with their mother.

The other three? The post says this: "three were left behind but in great condition!"
