Lucky ducks rescued from N.H. storm drain

MANCHESTER, N.H. – Just in time for Mother’s Day, a mother duck has been reunited with two of her babies who fell into a storm drain in Manchester, N.H.

The mother was crossing the street with 11 ducklings parading behind her Thursday when two of the little ones tumbled through a grate. Workers at a nearby hair salon called police, who sent a crew from the city water works department. While salon workers corralled the upset mother duck and other ducklings in a box, the city workers opened the grate, climbed into the drain and rescued the two ducklings.

The salon owner told the New Hampshire Sunday News that when all 12 were taken to the Merrimack River, they were met by a male duck who led the family into the water.

Citizen Online Archive, 2006-2009

This archive contains all the stories that appeared on the Tucson Citizen's website from mid-2006 to June 1, 2009.

In 2010, a power surge fried a server that contained all of videos linked to dozens of stories in this archive. Also, a server that contained all of the databases for dozens of stories was accidentally erased, so all of those links are broken as well. However, all of the text and photos that accompanied some stories have been preserved.
