March 17 (UPI) -- A visitor to a Southwest Florida bridge captured video of a shrimp boat attempting to pass under the structure and temporarily getting stuck.

Abraham Arrasola was streaming video on Facebook Live when the shrimp boat attempted to pass under the Matanzas Pass Bridge in Fort Myers.

The boat makes contact with the bridge and ends up stuck for a few minutes before it is able to continue on its way.

Arrasola said he could see pieces of the bridge falling as the boat worked to free itself.

The extent of the damage to the bridge and the boat was unclear.
