WILMINGTON, NC (WECT) – Traffic came to a stop at Carolina Beach Road and Shipyard Boulevard Tuesday morning as firefighters made an unusual rescue.
Several police cars blocked off traffic on Carolina Beach as firefighters tried to rescue a bird that got stuck in a street pole. A couple of firefighters climbed to the top of the ladder and gently pulled the struggling sea gull from the electric pole.
Rescue crews on the scene said they believed the bird broke one of its legs, but other than that, the bird appeared to be okay.
