A group of firefighters in Missouri got creative to rescue five baby ducks from a storm drain. 

Branson Firefighters and Western Taney County FPD Firefighters said the ducklings were trapped by the Taneycomo bridge.

Firefighters used a fire hydrant to flood the storm drain and float the baby ducks downstream to another fireman at an open manhole cover.
