What goes up must come down, even if it takes the fire department to make it happen.
Such was the case early Saturday when a man had to be rescued from the top of the Wells Street Bridge.
About 3 a.m., police and firefighters received a report of a man being stuck on the bridge.
The fire department was able to get to the man by leaning a 45-foot-tall ladder against the bridge, Assistant Chief Elbert Starks said.
He walked down on his own. We just escorted him with a firefighter below him on the ladder, Starks said.
The fire department occasionally is called to rescue people out of trees or other high places, but the bridge scenario Saturday morning was something rare.
