Firefighters had to step in and rescue a man after his minivan became wedged in a drawbridge in downtown Green Bay, Wisconsin.

Officials say the van got stuck between one of the opening spans and the fixed roadway on the Walnut Street Bridge early one Thursday.

The Green Bay Metro Fire Department says the driver apparently tried to “beat the bridge” when he went around the traffic arm and drove onto the opening span, and then coasted back into the gap. Firefighters worried the van could fall through the opening, so they cut a hole in the van’s roof and pulled the man through the hole. Video shows a heavy-duty wrecker lifting the van out of the gap.

The man was not hurt. Officials say the bridge was not damaged. It is not known if the driver received a ticket for his blunder.
