A man pulled from the Pequonnock River in Bridgeport Saturday morning is recovering in the hospital, according to police.
The man was rescued just before 10 a.m. Saturday after two people reported seeing a body in the water near the Bridgeport train station, police said.
The victim is still in the hospital. His identity is being withheld while police investigate to determine how the man ended up in the river.
Police and fire boats canvassed the water Saturday morning and found a male victim floating face-up in the river, just south of the Stratford Avenue bridge, according to police.
Police said they pulled the victim into a boat. The man showed signs of life, and emergency officials performed CPR and rushed him to Bridgeport Hospital.
The victim’s condition is unknown.
