Pole-top rescue

With a towel in hand and standing in the bucket of a ladder truck, St. Petersburg fire Lt. Vernon Hampton prepares to rescue a sea gull struggling Monday atop a utility pole. The gull's legs were stuck in the pole's cracks. The 15-minute rescue took place at about 3 p.m. at 35th Avenue N and Fourth Street. Both legs of the gull appeared to be broken, and the bird will be treated.
