Death investigation involving person on Tobin Bridge underway

One southbound lane of the Tobin Bridge was closed this morning as authorities investigated the death of a person who fell from the bridge, officials said.

Multiple public safety agencies responded to the scene, and authorities are currently conducting a recovery operation in the area, according to Suffolk District Attorney Daniel F. Conley’s office.
