CLEVELAND, OH (WOIO) – It is a photograph that defies logic. One that has triggered a huge reaction on social media.

How could this happen?

A recently installed fire hydrant placed directly in the middle of a sidewalk; it is impossible to get a stroller or wheelchair past it.

On Monday, 19 News was first to report on the fire hydrant. We wondered what was going to be done about it.

Thousands have shared the picture and story on Facebook pages all over the country.
