Florida firefighters rescue an eagle impaled by a lightning rod near a school’s radio tower

An eagle is now safe after being impaled by a lightning rod on a 120-foot radio tower above an elementary school in MacClenny, Fla.

According to Fox 13, firefighters from the MacClenny Fire Rescue Department assisted wildlife authorities to ensure the eagle was safely rescued.

“Great job guys. We are very proud of you and what a reputation. To be so close to America’s symbol of freedom, what a memory!” Read a social media post from MFRD.

Upon arriving at the scene, the crews climbed to an altitude of 100 feet.

An engineer then exited the bucket of a fire truck’s ladder and had to hook into the tower to climb the remaining 20 feet.

Once freed from the tail, the eagle flew down where its safety was ensured by wildlife rescuers.
