HASTINGS-ON-HUDSON, N.Y. -- Hastings Police reported Tuesday that a 33-year-old man died after he was found lying along a stretch of the Old Croton Aqueduct Monday, June 23.
Hastings Police Chief Anthony Vissalli said the village received a call for a man down on the Aqueduct near Baker Lane where Hastings and Greenburgh police and emergency medical technicians responded.
The man's name has not yet been released, but he is believed to be a Hastings area resident.
"(The man) was worked on by Hastings Police officers, Hastings Ambulance and the Greenburgh Paramedics," Vissalli said. "He was transported to Dobbs Ferry Hospital emergency room and was pronounced a short time later."
Visalli said the cause of death or what activity the man was performing was unknown because there were no witnesses to his falling. The Aqueduct, which runs along the Hudson Rivertowns 32 miles from Croton to New York City, is regularly used by joggers, cyclists and walkers.
Visalli said the cause of death would be determined by an examination by the Westchester County Medical Examiner.
