Officers work to save a duckling on Mother's Day.

On Mother’s Day, officers from Flushing‘s 109th Precinct worked to reunite a small feathered friend with its mom.

In events chronicled on the precinct’s Twitter page on May 14, Officers Schintzer, Campanelli and Vlaovich were flagged down by a passerby and told of a small duckling that had fallen into a drain.


The trio of officers quickly got to work, removing the grate and searching for the baby in the muck.

Successful, the precinct tweeted “All’s well that ends well” with a photo of the mother duck and her babies reunited.
