Fire departments in Indianapolis unite for rope rescue operation

Indianapolis, Indiana -The Indianapolis Fire Department and the Wayne Township Fire Department collaborated to rescue a woman who had fallen from a train bridge in west Indianapolis on a recent Thursday.

The woman fell from the bridge, situated approximately a quarter mile south of Crawfordsville, while accompanied by a friend. This incident led to a request for help.

Although no exact address was provided to the department, they located the individual who made the call on the train tracks. They observed that the woman had fallen off the bridge and down an embankment.

The rescuers decided that a rope team was essential due to the woman’s position. As a result, the team was summoned to help.

Directed by WTFD Ladder 82, the rope teams journeyed a quarter mile from Crawfordsville Road and Louise Lane to reach the victim. They then established the rope system to safely retrieve the woman.

Afterwards, the woman was elevated to level terrain and manually carried to the paramedics. She was subsequently transported to a nearby trauma center, with her condition yet to be confirmed by the department.
