Woman rescued after clinging to opening bridge in Florida
A 55-year-old Florida woman was left dangling 22ft (6.7m) in the air when the railway bridge she was crossing opened.

Wanda Keating McGowan had been taking part in a charity walk to raise awareness of breast cancer when she walked onto the bridge over Fort Lauderdale's New River.

Witnesses said alarms sounded to indicate that the bridge was about to raise, but the woman did not manage to make it off in time, and was left clinging on between two railway tracks.
