Man Rescued from Bridge Embankment
04/04/2019- It was a challenging situation for City of Menominee emergency response agencies this afternoon as they worked to rescue a person that had fallen down an embankment along the Interstate Bridge. Officials were called to the scene behind the Bridgeview Apartments just after 12:00 PM for a 45-year-old man that had suffered a personal injury after the fall. Because of the steep embankment and slippery conditions, crews had to lift the individual over the side of the bridge using the Menominee Fire Department’s ladder truck, resulting in a high angle rescue. That individual was then transported by ambulance to the local hospital for medical care.
