LYONS — Local firefighters and ambulance personnel pulled a man from the Erie Canal early Thursday morning after he apparently jumped off the Route 14 bridge.
Wayne County sheriff’s Sgt. Aaron DiSanto said shortly after 6:30 a.m., the Lyons Fire Department, Lyons Ambulance and Wayne County Advanced Life Support responded after receiving a report of a person jumping off the bridge. Responders pulled the unresponsive man, later identified as Aaron Brumfield, 29, of Rochester, from the water.
Brumfield is a former Lyons resident.
He was taken by ambulance to Newark-Wayne Community Hospital before being airlifted to Strong Memorial Hospital in Rochester. He was listed in guarded condition Thursday afternoon.
State police assisted at the scene.
“The incident is under investigation,” said DiSanto, who declined further comment.
