Unidentified man pulled from St. Joe River


— SOUTH BEND — Authorities say investigators need help in identifying a man who was in critical condition after he was pulled from the St. Joseph River.

State conservation officers say South Bend firefighters pulled the man from the St. Joseph River and rushed him to a hospital Monday evening.

David Jaramillo told the South Bend Tribune he was driving on a bridge just north of South Bend when he saw the man fall or jump off the bridge and he called 911.

Conservation Officer Jerry Hoerdt says the unidentified man is white, about 5-foot-11, believed to be in his mid-50s, with salt-and-pepper hair and a mustache. He was wearing a medical bracelet listing him as taking Coumadin and suffering from a tape allergy.
