BEACON – A 31-year-old Stormville man’s body was recovered after he apparently jumped from the Newburgh-Beacon Bridge Sunday evening.
State police from the East Fishkill barracks responded to the bridge at about 7:45 p.m. Sunday after a man called 911 to report he had spotted an unoccupied Volkswagen Jetta stopped in a westbound lane of the bridge with its hazard lights flashing.
Troopers discovered that Anthony M. Sinishtai, 31, of Stormville, had exited the vehicle and jumped from the bridge.
Members of the state police dive team recovered Sinishtai’s body from the frozen Hudson River. State police were assisted at the scene by Town of Fishkill police and the City of Beacon Fire Department.
State police said their investigation is continuing.
