Bicyclist versus lift bridge

MENASHA, Wis. (AP) — Police say a bicyclist who weaved past the gates blocking access to a bridge over a river in eastern Wisconsin escaped serious injury after falling into the gap that was created when the bridge started to rise. Onlookers rushed to her aid and the bridge operator stalled the bridge until the woman was extracted. Police say the 37-year-old woman was taken to a hospital where she was treated for facial injuries.
