According to the FDNY, the incident happened just before 8 p.m. Saturday night on the Queensboro Bridge, near 2nd Avenue and 59th Street. A 23-year-old man was biking toward Manhattan when he apparently fell over a railing and landed a level below, next to a car lane.
The victim, whose name hasn't been released yet, was taken to New York-Presbyterian Hospital in serious but stable condition. He is expected to survive. Police had no further information about the incident.
This summer, a female passenger was killed after falling off a motorcycle on the bridge.
