The body of a Cumberland man was found near the Blue Bridge Sunday.

The body of Jack Wooldridge, 63, was recovered by an EMS crew.  West Virginia State Police, in Keyser, says it appears that Wooldridge fell and hit his head, and succumbed from the injuries.  Wooldridge is said to have been well known in the area, and is believed to have been homeless.

The West Virginia Medical Examiner has concurred with the assessment, and a toxicology report has been ordered.
