NEPTUNE TOWNSHIP, N.J. (AP) - Police say 11 ducklings trapped in a storm drain in New Jersey have been rescued and returned to their mother.

The ducklings were stuck in a pipe under a street in Neptune Township Sunday afternoon.

Residents found the birds after noticing their mother appeared to be in distress.

Police say rescuers - including police, the Department of Public Works and the Humane Society - had to climb into two storm drains to lure the ducklings into nets.

All the ducklings were rescued unharmed.
