    The right wing failed to heed the warning signals.

    The 55-year-old became trapped Saturday morning about 22 feet off the ground when the bridge over the New River went back into its normal upright position after the passage of a train minutes earlier.

    Based on information the FEC received from Fort lauderdale police, Ledoux identified the woman as Wanda McGowan.

    “She was just stuck in this Jesus Christ position,” said Phillip Glazebrook, a Fort Lauderdale man who witnessd the riveting rescue. “The woman was frozen and terrified.”

    Pictures of the woman clinging to the bridge went viral and were picked up in newspapers across the country. The British Broadcasting Corp. and CNN were among the networks that contacted Fort Lauderdale Fire Rescue for more information, said spokesman Matt Little.

    In a statement released Sunday, Little expressed concerns, saying the woman’s “decision to cross the clearly marked railroad bridge should not be lauded.”

    “We are thankful that the individual involved in this life-threatening incident survived,” he said. “The decision to trespass on private property was an unfortunate poor choice that endangered the trespasser’s life as well as the lives of the first responders.”
