Man's body recovered from Hudson

On Wednesday, we reported that a man had jumped into the Hudson River from the pedestrian walkway along the Rip Van Winkle Bridge.

The Register-Star is reporting that a man's body has been recovered from an area of the river north of the bridge.

State Police issued a press release Thursday stating the body had been recovered about a quarter mile north of the bridge at approximately 1:30 p.m. Members of the state police dive team, assisted by the Greenport Rescue Squad, discovered the submerged body.

A car identified as belonging to the victim was discovered at the pull-off for the bridge on the Columbia County side. The Columbia County Coroner has planned an autopsy for the victim, whose name has not been released.
