BUFFALO, NY - A bicyclist who was found lying face-down in Ellicott Creek on Monday night, has died.

Matthew Hovagimian, 18, of,  was found by a kayaker in the area of Old Falls Boulevard in Amherst Monday.  Hovagimian died Tuesday at ECMC.

The Erie County Medical Examiner's office says an autopsy is being performed Wednesday to determine an exact cause of death.
