There was a bit of bumping going on between a sailboat and the Duluth Aerial Lift Bridge Wednesday night.  

The Lift Bridge operator told Eyewitness News that the current swept a sailboat into the bridge, snagging its mast around 6:30 p.m.

Two parties of volunteers in boats helped pull it free. 

There was little, if any, damage to the sailboat or the bridge.
