PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) - The Oregon state medical examiner says last week’s death of a Ridgefield, Washington, man who jumped off a Portland bridge into the Willamette River was an accident.

Another man had told Portland police that his friend wanted to go swimming in the river at 3 a.m. May 15.

The Columbian reports (https://is.gd/Ffi7rv ) that the medical examiner determined 22-year-old Tyler Fisher died of blunt force trauma and drowning.

His body was recovered a few hours later. The Columbian reports the river temperature at the time was about 56 degrees.
