Dog recovering after 60-foot plunge

A dog is recovering this morning after falling 60 feet off a bridge in Bridgeport.

Animal control officers say the pit bull mix jumped near exit 26 on I-95 Friday.

The dog landed below and survived with no broken bones.

The dog is at Bridgeport Animal Hospital.

If no one claims him, animal control says he will be up for adoption in two to three weeks.
