DES MOINES, Iowa  —  A mother duck and her flock of ducklings have a team of complete strangers to thank for saving their lives.

On Thursday, 14 ducklings fell into a storm drain on Locust Street in the East Village Nieghborhood.  Employees of nearby shops and a team of construction workers installing a new manhole jumped into action.
