Cuteness Overload! Adorable Babies Rescued From Sewers (Video+Photos)

trenchless plumbing repairMost people don’t want to think about what goes on in their sewer pipes, and plumbers often have a rather thankless job. But every so often trenchless plumbing repair workers find an adorable surprise during a routine camera drain inspection. And with fast action, trenchless plumbing repair workers can contact animal control or local firefighters, who help pull adorable kitten, pups, and duckies from what would otherwise be a watery grave.

Without further ado, here are five videos and pictures of adorable babies rescued out from the depths:

1. Puddles The Kitten Rescued From Pipe

Down South, Spartanburg Animal Services got a call from a local neighborhood watch about a kitten stuck in a storm drain. The unlucky black cat was successfully rescued by animal rescue officials, who dubbed the little guy “Puddles.” After his viral 15 minutes of fame, Puddles was adopted by a local family and lived happily ever after.

2. Four Ducklings Rescued From Storm Drain

In what might possibly be the most Canadian story of the year (so far), a group of youngsters in Saskatchewan rescued four baby ducklings using a hockey stick. This May, the Dodds family rigged together a butterfly net and hockey stick to save the baby ducks from a park storm drain. Ceiligh Dodds, 15, spoke for all mankind when she said, “Guys, I’m holding two ducklings. This is all I’ve ever wanted.”

3. Make Way For Ducklings

Apparently, ducks have a really tough time with storm drains. Also in May of this year, firefighters outside San Francisco rescued eight baby ducks from disaster and reunited the hatchlings with their anxious mother.

4. Seriously, Be More Careful, Ducks Everywhere…

We’re not sure what’s cuter, these rescued ducks chirp, chirp, chirping, or the Chattanooga Fire Department staff fretting over the fate of the little guys.

5. Newborn Boy Rescued In China

In the Fall of 2014, a video went viral around the world showing a newborn baby boy trapped inside a sewer pipe. Fast acting neighbors in China helped save the boy’s life, preventing a near tragedy in the process, and video of the dramatic rescue quickly spread on social media. Authorities in China say the baby accidentally fell into the pipe.

Most sewer pipes are about 6 inches or more in diameter, which makes them the perfect size to trap small animals. Occasionally, during sewer line repairs or trenchless plumbing repair projects, baby animals are discovered trapped in the dark. But that’s not the only thing plumbers can rescue.

Unfortunately, many people put off needed sewer pipe repairs because they think it requires ruining their yard; however, trenchless plumbing repair has been around for 15 years, and now plumbers can save your yard from ugly trenches. And remember: According to Angie Hicks of Angie’s List, all homes older than 40 years years should get an inspection of sewer pipes.
