An osprey rescued from a cell phone tower in New Bern is healing from its injuries at a rehabilitation center.

The bird became stuck on the tower while trying to help another stranded osprey, experts said.

NewsChannel 12 attached a camera to a rescuer on Thursday, as he freed the bird. Its wings were weak but nothing was broken, just some possible nerve damage.

The bird was taken to the Carolina Raptor Center in Charlotte. It will be there for about 6 months.
