Eagle rescued from Florida storm drain dies from injuries

ORLANDO, Fla. — A bald eagle rescued from a storm drain in central Florida has died.

The Audubon Center for Birds of Prey said on its Facebook page that the eagle died Monday night at a veterinary hospital.

The eagle had fluid around her heart or air in her abdomen, indicating other injuries. She was rescued last week from a storm drain where she had gotten stuck with another eagle, which eventually managed to fly away.

The bird, believed to be a female of the iconic species, was pulled out of a roadside storm drain in Orange County, in the Orlando area.
