Bicyclist ignores drawbridge gates, falls into gap in roadway

Cyclist tries to take on rising drawbridge

A woman has been treated for facial injuries after trying to ride her bike on a rising drawbridge in the United States.

The bridge operator was also notified, so that the bridge was kept open - along with the gap that would have closed and crushed the woman had it been lowered again.

Scary video from Menasha, Wisconsin shows a biker falling into a Wisconsin bridge.

In the video you can see a woman on a bicycle maneuver past the arms, hit one and almost fall off her bike. More than a minute later, people come to her aid, one checking her condition, another appearing to phone for help.

The woman was rushed to a local hospital after being pulled out of the gap by several Good Samaritans in the area.

The July 4 incident saw the unidentified 37 year-old woman riding home through Menasha, Wi., after the Independence Day fireworks.

The lengthy clip posted to the department's YouTube channel shows emergency crews' directing traffic around the responding ambulance before it left the scene.
