A 30-year-old Englewood man was undergoing a lengthy emergency surgery after jumping from a Route 4 overpass early Tuesday in a suspected suicide attempt, authorities said.
Responding city police officers found him moving but severely injured on South Dean Street below the highway at 7:15 a.m., Deputy Chief Gregory Halstead said.
He was taken to Hackensack University Medical Center with a possibly severe spinal injury, along with heavy facial injuries and cuts, responders said.
South Dean Street was temporarily closed between Van Nostrand Avenue and Rockwood Place, Halstead said.
