BOSTON (WHDH) - A water rescue involving multiple agencies at Dorchester Bay was called off after officials learned the man they were looking for had been found and was OK.
Crews from the Coast Guard, Boston Fire, Massachusetts State Police and Massport, among others, could be seen at Dorchester Bay around 4:30 a.m., searching the water near Morrissey Boulevard.
The teams were responding to reports of a man who went off of the Beades Bridge earlier that morning.
State Police said the person jumped after a trooper approached him and another person, responding to reports of two men fighting in the area, then returning to the same spot.
Rescue operations started soon after the man who jumped was no longer visible.
It would be hours before State Police learned the jumper had been able to swim to shore near Malibu Beach, and even made his way to work in Norwell later in the morning.
Both men were from Dorchester and ages 24 and 34, according to State Police.
A full investigation into what happened is underway.
