EDGARTOWN, Mass. (WBZ NewsRadio) — One swimmer is dead and one remains missing after a group of four people jumped off the "Jaws Bridge" on Martha's Vineyard Sunday evening, police said.

Massachusetts State Police said the four swimmers jumped off the bridge, which connects the towns of Edgartown and Oak Bluffs, at 11 p.m. Two of the swimmers were rescued from the water, but the other two did not surface after jumping.

The U.S. Coast Guard, state and local police, and several fire departments conducted an all night search for the missing pair involving boats, helicopters, and diving teams.

The body of one of the missing swimmers, aged 26, was recovered from the water early Monday morning, state police said. The search for the fourth swimmer, aged 21, is ongoing.

State police later confirmed that the deceased victim and missing victim were brothers working as seasonal employees at a restaurant on the island. Multiple reports from Jamaica say the brothers were from Clarendon, Jamaica.
