BlackBerry has been all about the applications as of late, it seems to have paid off for two ducklings trapped in a storm drain in BlackBerry’s home country that were saved using an application on the company’s new BlackBerry Z10.

Two ducklings have BlackBerry’s focus on applications to thank for their lives after the duo fell in a storm drain earlier this week in Windsor, Ontario. The ducklings and their mother were walking on a local street when a resident noticed that the two duckling had disappeared. Hearing noise from a nearby storm drain, Michael Williams was quick to jump in and help. He heard the duckling move into a pipe leading underground, away from the reservoir, so he quickly jumped onto his BlackBerry Z10 and looked for a duck calling application, he found it and while it downloaded, he contacted the City of Windsor.
The application kept the ducklings from wondering off and disappearing into a set of deep underground pipes until a city worker came to make a daring rescue. The ducklings were taken out with a net and placed in a nearby field, reunited with their mother. As the ducklings were minors, they declined to comment, but appeared relieved.
