UPDATE: A 62-year-old man who leaped into the Hackensack River from a bridge on Route 3 in Secaucus this morning was being treated at Meadowlands Hospital Medical Center, CLIFFVIEW PILOT has learned.

“I have no indication that he’s not” going to survive, Detective Capt. John Buckley told CLIFFVIEW PILOT .

The jumper pulled over his SUV on the bridge just before 11:30 a.m., got out and jumped, the captain said.

A construction worker nearby pulled him into a boat, after which the man “was removed from the scene by ambulance,” Buckley said.

The incident caused severe highway tie-ups.
