The man was taken to West Suffolk Hospital in Bury where he was pronounced dead a short time later.
The river flows along a deep channel through the centre of the supermarket’s car park, and emergency services at the scene were stationed opposite the petrol station near the recycling facilities.
Suffolk Constabulary, Suffolk Fire and Rescue Service, the East of England Ambulance Service and the Suffolk Accident Rescue Servuce (SARS) all attended.
