A woman got the scare of a lifetime when the railroad bridge she was walking along began to open - leaving her dangling helplessly.

Firefighters rescued the 55-year-old woman on Saturday. She was not hurt.

The woman, who had participated in a breast cancer awareness walk earlier in the day, was walking across the New River railroad bridge in Fort Lauderdale when it began to open. Witnesses called 911 to report that the woman was dangling 22 feet above the tracks with the bridge in the upright position, city officials said.

"To tell you the truth, honestly I thought it was probably like a stunt or something, it was just that unbelievable. I really didn't think she honestly was trapped up there at first," Ashanicka Powell told WTVJ.
