Worker rescued from 14th St. Bridge

By Washington Post editors

An injured worker on the 14th Street Bridge had to be rescued by D.C. Fire and EMS, officials reported Tuesday morning.

The worker became trapped on a catwalk about midway on the outbound side of the bridge shortly before 10 a.m. Officials said his injuries were not life-threatening, but he was not able to move. D.C. fire boats were called to the scene, and the worker was eventually able to be lowered into a boat.

Fire and EMS officials say he has been taken to the Columbia Island Marina.
