A Rhode Island officer went beyond the call of duty and saved the lives of four ducklings.

The baby ducks had fallen into storm drain and Portsmouth Police Officer Celico removed a manhole cover and fished them out with a net.

In photos circulated by Portsmouth police on social media, Celico is seen sticking his head down the manhole and reemerging with the ducklings in a net.

“Great job by Officer Celico,” said the post.
