Miami-Dade Ocean Rescue saved a pelican with a broken wing at Haulover Beach on Tuesday morning.

The injured brown pelican was spotted by lifeguards as it failed to take off because of a broken wing, according to Miami-Dade Fire Rescue.

Ocean Rescue got to the bird and put him in a holding container to prevent further injury.

The bird was then taken to Pelican Harbor Seabird Station for treatment.
