(11/6/13) A construction worker fell this morning from the Dresbach Bridge just north of La Crosse over the Mississippi River on Interstate-90.

  Reports from two La Crosse T-V stations said the person was working on the bridge when he fell about 45-feet -- and rescuers had to use boats and hoists to get to the victim.  The Tri-State Ambulance service was called around 9:05 a-m.  Two area fire departments joined in the response.
