Authorities Recover Body of Adult Male that Jumped From Thomas Johnson Bridge

October 4, 2019

On Wednesday, October 2, 2019, at approximately 3:10 a.m., police fire, and rescue personnel from St. Mary’s County and Calvert County responded to the Thomas Johnson Bridge, for a water rescue.

At approximately 3:00 a.m., NAS Patuxent River called Maryland State Police in Calvert County advising they found a vehicle running on the top of the bridge with the hazard lights on, and believed someone may have jumped into the water below and requested a water rescue assignment.

Units and personnel from the Maryland State Police Helicopter Trooper 7, United States Coast Guard, Calvert County Dive Team, Solomons, St. Leonard, and Ridge Volunteer Fire Departments responded to the Thomas Johnson Bridge to assist in locating a possible male subject in the water.

Firefighters advised they had no further information as nothing was left in the vehicle, witnesses fishing at nearby piers advised they had not heard or seen anything. Firefighters searched for approximately 1 hour with no results.

On Wednesday, October 2, 2019 at approximately 4:30 p.m., police and fire personnel responded to Myrtle Point Park, where a 911 caller reported they found a body floating in the water.

Crews arrived on the scene and with the assistance of the Maryland Department of Natural Resources Police, Bay District Volunteer Fire Department and Maryland State Police, units recovered an adult male victim from the water.

The Maryland State Police are currently investigating.

      That is all you ever post.

    • BooBerry on October 5, 2019 at 1:29 am

      Easy. New car, new Truck, several vacations/cruises oops I mean *business trips* that “required” family members to attend. At the charity’s expense of course. Etc Etc. Oh and inflated salary.

      Don’t believe an anonymous post, research it for yourself before you donate…. I found out the hard way too…

      STFU you loser.

    • Another victim's survivor on October 5, 2019 at 7:16 pm

      That is exactly what I would love to know and will refuse to donate until. There is a great program in Anne Arundel county, Bo’s Effort that shows what their program does and where the money goes to help the mental issues and the families.

    Prayers to friends and family. It’s sad he felt this was his only choice. I wished there was a way to prevent people from jumping along with making it a 4 lane.

    It’s funny how most ‘anonymous’ posters are always so ignorant and think the public needs to hear all their snide remarks. Be a man and come out from behind that mask!! So sorry for this person and his family.

    • Mark on October 10, 2019 at 3:21 pm

      Well said LizzieB

    • The REAL Truth on October 12, 2019 at 5:35 pm

      What is funny is the FACT that both the counties tied to this bridge are flooded with money but cannot cough up a single cent to properly repair, expand, and install proper safety equipment on this bridge to prevent these kinds of tragedies!
