A 64 year old man jumped off of the Daniels Farm Rd. Bridge, at the Route 25 overpass in Trumbull, late Sunday evening. 

At approximately 8:20 p.m., Trumbull Police received several 911 calls reporting a man sitting on the fence on the overpass. As officer’s arrived, bystanders were seen speaking with the man as he sat on the fence that spans over the highway. 

Shortly after police arrived, the man jumped off the overpass onto the roadway of Route 25 southbound. Officers immediately responded to render medical aid, and found the victim conscious and alert, but suffering serious injuries from the fall. 

Trumbull EMS responded and transported the man to Bridgeport Hospital for treatment, where he remains in critical condition Sunday night. The man’s identity is being withheld pending family notification, but preliminary information indicates that he is not a Trumbull resident. 

A vehicle was located on Daniels Farm Road near the bridge that is suspected to belong to the victim. 

Trumbull Police are currently investigating this incident as a suicide attempt and were assisted by the Connecticut State Police who also responded to the Route 25 highway.
