Man Rescued From Bridge Above I-94
On Monday, December 5, 2022, at approximately 4:04 pm, Moorhead Police Officers were dispatched to a report of a suspicious male near the 2000 block of 28 Avenue South. When officers arrived, the male was located on top of a railroad bridge support pillar to the south of the call location approximately 25-30 feet above the westbound shoulder of I-94. The male had a self-inflicted injury to his hand and was suffering from cold weather exposure related medical issues.
The Moorhead Fire Department responded to the scene and with the assistance of their ladder truck the male was safely removed from the pillar and received treatment from Sanford Ambulance. The male was transported to a local hospital for non-life-threatening injuries. The westbound lanes of I94 between 34 Street South and 20 Street South were temporarily closed to facilitate equipment needed to rescue the male.
The Minnesota State Patrol also assisted with the lane closures and traffic direction.
