Florida Woman Stuck Dangling on Raised Drawbridge

FORT LAUDERDALE (NBC Miami) – Fort Lauderdale firefighters rescued a breast cancer walk participant Saturday after she got stuck on a railroad bridge as it was lifting into the air. The 55-year-old Dania Beach woman, whose identity was not immediately released, ended up hanging onto the bridge by her hands and feet as it moved into an upright position. Witnesses said she stayed calm as she held on for half an hour, about 22 feet above the train tracks, until her rescue.
