Firefighter rescues injured red-tailed hawk in Manhattan

MANHATTAN (WABC) -- The FDNY came to the rescue of an injured red-tailed hawk in Manhattan Thursday.

It happened on Canal Street.

Licensed wildlife rehabilitator and FDNY Firefighter Robert Horvath went up in Ladder 1 to rescue the bird from a third floor apartment air conditioner unit.

Using a long net, Horwath managed to safely capture the hawk and bring it down to the ground safely.

Now the animal will be rehabilitated and hopefully released back into the wild.
