MEMPHIS, Tenn. — A Memphis woman has gone viral for all the right reasons.

Shara Fenell told FOX13 she was walking in Downtown Memphis on Memorial Day near the Peabody Hotel when she heard a noise. She said she wasn't sure what the noise was at first or where it was coming from, until she looked in a storm drain.

When Fenell looked down, she saw about eight ducklings. She and her friend noticed the mother duck walking around the drain trying to do something.
