Reckless cyclist falls after ignoring bridge warnings

A woman was seen on a WI DOT camera riding her bike onto a bridge as it opened then falling through the crack

Police say she ignored the barrier and red flashing lights at the bridge in Menasha, and apparently did not notice that it was already cranking into action.

Video shows a woman in Wisconsin riding her bike around safety barriers and onto a bridge as the span was lifted.

The bridge operator was made aware of the incident and did not move the bridge span until everyone was off of the bridge, the Menasha Police Department said.

The video shows the woman hit the stop arms as she rides past and onto the Racine Street Bridge.

A cyclist has miraculously escaped injury after falling into the gap of a moving drawbridge.

However, the report notes that she's a 37-year-old woman and that she was taken to a hospital in Neenah where she was treated for facial injuries.

After about a minute, people rush over to help her get out. Considering how badly this could have turned out for her, a few scratches and bruises to her face must feel like a trifle.
