A FAMILY of ducklings were saved from a drain in Edithvale last week.

A resident walking through the Edithvale Wetlands heard quacking coming from a drain on Sunday, and called emergency services. The local Chelsea SES unit swooped in to save the day.

The SES unit dismantled the drain and used a sheet of plastic to act as a makeshift ramp for the ducks, allowing them to make their escape.

Seven ducklings were freed, and soon after waddled off alongside their parents.
