Person jumps in Charles; body recovered

Looking for person in the Charles River

The Boston Fire Department reports Boston and Cambridge firefighters converged on the Massachusetts Avenue Bridge around 7:30 a.m. on reports of a person in the water. John Duffill reports they found the person's body.



What are typical ranges of heights that develop for diving from the bridge, between the bridge and top of the water?... greater than 33 feet/10 meters ?

It depends on how high the water level is.

Consider that the path is about 3-8 feet above the water and the bridge is a 40' climb up from the path.

You are correct, the fall itself is not deadly.

It is sad that they chose to end their life and possibly traumatize a bunch of people in the process. My condolences to their family.
