Emergency responders flocked to the Stewart Avenue Bridge Wednesday afternoon after a college-aged male was found at the bottom of the Cascadilla Gorge.

Responders were called around 5 p.m. Wednesday after a man was found by passersby near the trail, approximately five to 10 feet from where he apparently landed, according to Lt. Thomas Basher, public information officer for the Ithaca Fire Department.
