A man was found dead under the Hell Gate Bridge at Astoria Park Friday morning, according to police.
At around 6:30 a.m., a passerby saw the body and called police, a detective on the scene said.
By 9:30 a.m., police had roped off a small section under the Hell Gate Bridge beside Astoria Park’s great lawn, and were gathered around one of the bridge columns, where the man’s body lay.
A cause of death has not yet been determined, but the detective said no criminality is expected at this time, and the man did not fall.
