(WTVR) - Firefighters were able to rescue a woman stuck on a South Florida railroad bridge on Saturday, according to a report pm

The 55-year-old woman participated in a breast cancer awareness walk earlier in the day. It was not clear how or why the woman ended up on the bridge.

"The decision to trespass on private property was an unfortunate, poor choice that endangered the trespasser's life as well as the lives of our first responders," Fort Lauderdale spokesman Matt Little told the news station. ""We hope the news reports about this incident will help to educate the public about the dangers of pedestrians attempting to cross railroad bridges. Public safety is the City's top priority."
