He had tumbled off a bridge trestle on East Franklin St. and landed on the river bed in a pile of heavy brush. The call went out to the Danbury Fire Department and EMS units who responded immediately and found the man injured about 12 feet down from the wall.

The injured man was found lying in a clump of poison ivy and underbrush. The Danbury Fire Dept. quickly raced into action by clearing the brush away and securing the injured man into a basket stretcher. After using ropes to raise the man up to the street level, he was taken to Danbury Hospital for treatment.
