BREAKING NEWS: 2 Kids Jumped Off A Bridge Near Ocean City 6-21-17



A witness watched 2 kids jump off one of the Route 90 bridges.  The fire department was on the scene within 3 minutes but have not been able to locate the kids.  At this time they are not sure if they were able to swim to shore or the under current took them.

Boys will be boys but that's crazy first of all know one should be on rt 90 unless in a car 2 nd all the money spent looking for them is crazy make there parents pay the bill.

Why they didn't call or ask for it

That's certainly pretty crazy.... But in their defense, there are no signs that say "No Jumping Off The Bridge".
For that reason they will probably get off of any charges - except for the charge of being idiots, and you really can't legislate that.

Hey anonymous who jumped the route 12 bridge in Snow Hill would that have been around 1956-57 or58? I lived probably a hundred yards from that bridge and jumped it frequently during those years. Would wait for a car to come along and pretend to fall off the rail.

Really they didnt ask for response and even if they did get first response because of injury they didnt intwntionally set out to use the department for anything.

Average 6-9 ft. Depends on what bridge also

Sick and tired of the boys will be boys BS. I get it! people do stupid things. But the boys will be boys attitude gets boys in real trouble later on in life. At the very least it gives them the idea they can do whatever they want and its just fine.

I once jumped off of the Bay Bridge & got knocked out when I hit the water.Oddly enough I floated on my back for 2 hours until a nice family from Annapolis pulled me into their boat,still unconscious.I came to about an hour later in the hospital.God apparently does watch over babies and fools.I jumped from the highest point west bound.

We used to jump off the Sharptown and the Brookview bridges all summer. We're all still here. Oh we drank from the hose and never heard of a bike helmet.

I've seen people I went to school with jump off the rt 13 highway bridge aka abc bridge, and they were fine.

If you are asking how deep the pocomoke river is under the rt 3 aka ABC bridge, well it is a legend that it is so deep that there is no bottom. My father and his friends would swim it when they were younger and several swam as deep as they could to find the bottom and never made
