Bridge Fall

A 19-year-old man has life-threatening injuries after falling from Interstate 90 along the Mississippi River.
Town of Campbell Fire Chief Nate Melby says the man is hospitalized after falling 45 feet into a coffer dam, which is a large metal structure built to support a construction project.

The man was working on the bridge project near Dresbach and fell about 9:00 a.m. Wednesday and was trapped in a confined space below the bridge after the accident. Rescue workers used a boat, rescue basket and crane to reach him.
