CARBONDALE, Ill., June 22 (UPI) -- An Illinois woman discovered a family of raccoons lived in her walls when a baby fell through her bathroom ceiling and desperately tried to climb the wall.

"Oh, honey. I'm sorry," James says as the baby stumbles back down to the ground.

"Hang on, guys. I'll get him up there," she says to the raccoon's family in the ceiling.

James wrote online that she helped the raccoon family reunite.

"There is a raccoon family living in my walls. A baby fell out of the ceiling, in to my bathroom. I put him back with his family after I shot this video," she wrote.
