HOLTWOOD, Pa. (WHTM) – Two PennDOT workers who were part of a team that found a crack in the Norman Wood Bridge over the Susquehanna River made a second discovery Monday: an injured bald eagle.

Crane operators Bill Huehn and Jim Knox were waiting for fog to lift before beginning the bridge inspection when they spotted the injured eagle behind a fence for Muddy Creek Park, PennDOT spokesman Greg Penny told ABC 27 News.

Huehn called the Pennsylvania Game Commission. A wildlife conservation officer was able to capture the eagle and take it to a rehabilitation facility in Delaware, Penny said.
