Saturday, a police officer in Lake Forest park was flagged down by a citizen who noticed that a distressed mother duck was standing over a drainage grate. It was apparent that two of her ducklings had fallen into the drain below. Officer Wieghat removed the drain cover and climbed down below the street level to fish out the two ducklings and bring them back to the surface. The drain where they were found was solidly covered, so it is not known where they went in or how long they traveled underground - or how their mother found them but the family is reunited and was last seen headed to Lake Washington.
