The rescue happened at about 8:40 a.m. EDT near Lesner Bridge in Virginia Beach, The (Norfolk) Virginian-Pilot reported.
The helicopter crew, which was doing work nearby for Dominion, a power supply company, flew next to the power line and a crew member reached out, grabbed the bird and put it into a container.
The seagull has been handed over to the U.S. Department of Agriculture, which will place it with a local animal rescue group or animal rehabilitation organization, said Bonita Billingsley Harris, a spokeswoman for Dominion.
