Wonders Naked man gets stuck on drawbridge

A man in Florida was stuck on drawbridge naked.

  • Published: , Refreshed:

Florida first responders rescued a naked man from the top of a Fort Lauderdale drawbridge on Friday, after he got stuck when the bridge was raised while he was walking across it, Huffington Post reports.

"He was swimming in the water previously, and he jumped out of the water and went to cross the bridge," bystander David Izabal told a reporter, explaining how the naked man got up there. "The bridge was coming up before he had gotten off the bridge."

Fort Lauderdale firefighters initially tried reaching the man with ladders, but the ladders weren't quite tall enough. Instead, members of the Broward Sheriff's Office scaled the structure and -- after wrapping the man in a towel -- secured him in a harness fixed to the structure. Then the bridge was slowly lowered back down.

The drawbridge spends 95 percent of its time up, and it clearly has "No Trespassing" signs.
