AMHERST, N.Y. (WIVB) - Amherst Police are working to identify the bicyclist who was found in Tonawanda Creek Monday evening. Authorities say the victim was found floating face down in the water by a kayaker around 7:45 p.m. The kayaker called 911 and aided the man until first responders arrived.
Police say the victim, in his early 20s, was not carrying identification and they have not been able to uncover who he is at this point. The victim is currently at ECMC in critical condition. It remains unclear how the victim ended up in the creek.
The victim is described as white, between 5'7" and 5'9" tall and weighing between 150- to 170-pounds. He has black hair and brown eyes and was wearing blue nylon Adidas shorts with a black stripe, black Nike sneakers, a green flannel shirt with a brown T-shirt underneath it with a picture of a lion on the front, green plaid boxer shorts and one grey and one black sock.
The man was recently treated for a burn on his left arm and was riding an older blue Schwinn mountain bike with a black seat and a red stripe.
Anyone who knows who the victim is should call Amherst Police at 689-1311.
