MOORHEAD, Minn. (Valley News Live) - A man was taken to the hospital after being rescued from the top of a railroad bridge, 25-35 feet above the westbound shoulder of I-94. Moorhead Police say the man was found around 4 PM near the 2000 block of 28th Ave S on top of a railroad bridge support pillar.

The man had a self-inflicted injury to his hand and was suffering from cold weather exposure-related medical issues. He was taken to a local hospital by ambulance for non-life threatening injuries.

Traffic was backed up on I-94 near 20th Street in Moorhead during the incident. Westbound traffic on I-94 was completely shut down for a period of time. Traffic was then reduced to one lane and officials were diverting traffic at 34th Street to the frontage road by the Moorhead Menards.

I-94 reopened westbound shortly before 5:00 p.m.
