Two people fall off Dryden Bridge

A case of a rescue attempt gone horribly wrong.  Dryden Police, paramedics and firefighters were called just before 10 o'clock last night after receiving a report that two people fell of the bridge platform at the Roy Wilson Suspension Bridge.  Police say an intoxicated woman fell into a fenced-in compound, 5-metres down from the bridge platform.  Her drunk friend tried to rescue her, but he ended up falling into the compound, badly breaking his leg. Personnel spent one hour cutting the fence, treating the victims and loading them up to the Ambulance. The woman suffered serious injuries. There is no word on if charges have been laid.
