TAOS, N.M. (AP) - Taos authorities are investigating a possible suicide on the Taos Gorge Bridge.

Taos County sheriff’s deputies closed the bridge Saturday morning to foot traffic so investigators could safely recover a body.

Authorities say a volunteer firefighter called Friday night after seeing a man jump off the bridge.

Responding deputies located a body near the southwest side of the bridge.

They also found a vehicle in the parking lot.

The incident remains under investigation.
