    February 18,2013

    COLCHESTER — Colchester police say a St. Michael’s College student remains hospitalized after jumping off a bridge and falling 40 feet while running from security officers.

    Police said Friday night’s chain of events began when the man allegedly destroyed merchandise at a convenience store and was chased by college security when he was spotted running through campus.

    Police told the Burlington Free Press that the man jumped over the rail of a bridge without warning and fell about 40 feet onto railroad tracks below.

    The man was taken to Fletcher Allen hospital, where he was treated in the intensive care unit and remained hospitalized Saturday night.

    Police say the man is an out-of-state student at St. Michael’s College, but they withheld releasing his name pending notification of his family.
