Two trucks and nine firefighters from Belgrade’s firefighting rescue unit on Sunday saved a man who was sleeping on the iron arches of the Old Railway Bridge over the River Sava in Belgrade.

The man, identified as Ivan T., is believed to have been under the influence of alcohol when he climbed onto the bridge. However, there has been no official statement regarding the exact circumstances of the incident.

According to police reports, the man was "conscious and without injuries" when they brought him down.

Meanwhile, the tram traffic across the bridge was uninterrupted on Sunday afternoon.
