Riders on a Pedal Tavern in Wisconsin over the weekend are being called "inverted heroes" after saving a group of ducklings that had fallen in a storm sewer.
The Florentine Opera Company in Milwaukee was getting a Pedal Tavern ready for a Ride for the Arts event Sunday when a cyclist, who saw the flock of ducklings plop into the sewer, alerted them of what had occurred, the Florentine Opera Company's Facebook page notes.

The opera members – a few of whom are experienced rock climbers – wasted no time to help the trapped ducklings reunite with their mother who was pacing nearby, the Journal Sentinel reports.
One member went upside down and was lowered by his feet into the sewer, with the others pulling him up over and over again to rescue all 10 ducklings one by one, the Facebook page notes.
The ducklings waddled off down a boat ramp and into the Milwaukee River, where they were reunited with their mother.
