TENAFLY, N.J. (AP) - Police say a New Jersey man is dead after he was thrown from a tandem bicycle that had experienced a mechanical failure over the weekend.

Officials said Tuesday that Paul Bertinato, of Dumont, was found unresponsive on the ground on Sunday afternoon in Tenafly. They say he had suffered head and facial injuries.

Officials say officers and a family member administered CPR on Bertinato. He later died at a hospital.
