A man zip-lined across the old Skyway Sunshine Bridge to save a pelican’s life. The bird was tangled up in fishing lines and lures and couldn’t fly. He had been there for a few days and would have died, so he got his gear out and zip-lined across the bridges to save the bird.
He zip-lined 30 feet above the gulf waters and got the bird to safety.
The bird is now at Save Our seabirds in Sarasota and is doing just fine.

Huge props to Mike Bitler of St. Pete for coming to the rescue!
