Man found dead after plunging into Charles River off busy bridge, police say

-

A man who plunged from the North Washington Bridge, drawing a large amphibious response right as crowds dispersed from the nearby Celtics game, was found dead, authorities said.

Boston Police on Saturday said they received a 911 call at 11:40 p.m. Friday for someone jumping into the water of the Charles River below from the North Washington Bridge, the under-construction stretches of road that connect downtown to Charlestown.

Police boats and fire tech rescue apparatus converged on the scene. After 45 minutes of searching, Boston Fire dive teams recovered the man’s body.

The call came just over 10 minutes after the Boston Celtics lost an NBA finals game nearby at the TD Garden, so the area was busy.

Boston fire tweeted photos of crews at work in and around the water.
