Roanoke County Police say an
officer was on routine patrol around
one yesterday afternoon, when a citizen
flagged him down and said a man had
just gone over the bridge.

When Fire and Rescue crews
reached the man 160 feet below he was
still alive, and they took him to the
hospital with what they describe as
potentially life threatening injuries.

He later died.

Investigators have not
established the man's identity.
