A bald eagle with a broken wing is on the road to recovery thanks to 3 men.

The DEC and NY State Parks & Historic Sites rescued the eagle from a gorge at Letchworth State Park. It had suffered a broken bone in its wing.

The eagle was taken to Cornell University where it underwent reconstructive surgery in a wildlife hospital where it'll remain until it can be released back into the wild.
