Woman stuck on open drawbridge during breast cancer walk; charged with trespassing

Posted: Updated:

A woman was stuck on an open drawbridge - hanging on for dear life - during a charity breast cancer walk in Florida.

The event happened over the weekend.

Authorities say they have charged the woman with trespassing saying she wasn't supposed to be on the bridge in the first place.
         
The bridge is not designed for pedestrians.
         
Police don't know why she was on it when it opened.
         
She was trapped for about 20 minutes, about 20 feet up, until firefighters were able to position a ladder and get her down.
