Woman In Breast Cancer Walk Gets Stuck On Raised Railroad Bridge

A breast cancer walk turned into a frightening ordeal for a woman who was left clinging to a railroad drawbridge over Fort Lauderdale's New River.

It wasn't immediately clear why the pink-clad woman, who has been identified only as a 55-year-old from Dania Beach, was trying to cross the railroad bridge, which is closed to pedestrians and wasn't part of the route for the Making Strides Against Breast Cancer 5K.

Images of her gripping the span after it opened and rose to an upright position flooded social media. Onlookers told Local10 the woman remained calm as she held on 22 feet in the air for about 20 minutes until firefighters were able to rescue her with a ladder.

Witness Philip Glazebrook said the bridge gives a loud signal before it rises over the river.

“This bridge is controlled from Tallahassee. There’s not a bridge minder here anymore,” he told NBC6. “So she’s stuck on the bridge and she’s going up. The next thing is, she’s stuck, straddled like Jesus Christ."

Fortunately, reports CBS Miami, the woman was unhurt. Check out the dramatic photos at the link!!!

If she lives there, she should have known better. Those drawbridges go up unexpectedly.

If this is going to be your Halloween costume, you MUST have two pieces of wood at the back.

I'm confused. How did she end up on the underside of the bridge?

Obviously asking for free health care so, yes, I'd water board her.

She's got one hell of a grip, all splayed out like that.
