Man’s fall shuts down Rainbow Bridge lanes
From the Niagara Falls Review:
A major international bridge in the Niagara Falls’ tourist district closed its U.S.-bound lanes for two hours Sunday after a man tumbled into the gorge.
Niagara Falls firefighters on the Canadian side of the border parked their aerial truck on the Rainbow Bridge and rescued a 25-year-old man from below.
“He got hauled out of the gorge, up onto the top of the Rainbow Bridge where we transferred the care into EMS hands,” said Niagara Falls Fire Department platoon chief Pete Methner.
Methner said the man had only minor injuries and was taken to hospital for assessment.
