FORT LAUDERDALE - A woman walking across the Sunrise Boulevard drawbridge was killed Thursday night when the bridge opened and she fell from the metal span to the concrete sidewalk, police said.

The bridge tender told police he did not see the woman on the Intracoastal Waterway bridge before the span was raised, Fort Lauderdale police Detective Clinton Ward said.

Ward said a witness saw the woman hanging from a railing, but she was unable to hold on.

This is the third time since 1988 that someone on the span has been killed when the bridge was opening."

Third time? Maybe they need a new bridge tender. My bets are it's Jessica Fletcher from Murder, She Wrote. That old lady killed a dude a week for years.
