Two baby turkeys fell through the grates of a Staten Island storm drain and were rescued by detectives from the NYPD's Emergency Service Unit.
Someone called 911 on Sunday night to report cries coming from a storm drain, according to the Staten Island Advance.
But when Detectives John Opman and Joseph Cordova arrived at the scene they realized the wailing wasn't coming from a human. It was coming from two wild turkey fledglings.
The birds had fallen through the grates of a storm sewer outside Staten Island University Hospital's Ocean Breeze campus.
The detectives used a net to scoop up one turkey but Cordova had to go down with a flashlight to get the other one.
A hospital worker took the turkeys to an animal shelter.
