Woman Is Smashed To Death By Drawbridge While Screaming For Help

What a way to go. :(

Is that a huge gear in a sidewalk I see to the left?

"A woman walking on the Meridian Street Bridge in East Boston was crushed to death this afternoon when the lift bridge was closed on top of her as she clung to one plate and screamed for help, according to Menino administration officials.

The incident took place around 12:21 p.m., and is now under investigation by Boston police, who are still at the scene at the bridge, which is also known as the Andrew McArdle bridge, that connects East Boston to Chelsea. Full story for BostonGlobe.com subscribers."
