(Lancaster) -- Authorities say an autopsy is scheduled today on the body of a man who died after plunging from a Lancaster County railroad bridge.

Officials identified the man as 49-year-old Scott Bronner.

His body was found Saturday afternoon partially in the water on a concrete abutment near the edge of the Conestoga River in the city of Lancaster.

Coroner Stephen Diamantoni says witnesses on the river saw the man fall about 50 to 60 feet.

Diamantoni said it was the first death he could recall at the Conestoga Creek Viaduct, which was constructed in 1887.
