Police have launched a search for a 13-year-old boy who went missing after falling into the River Thames from Tower Bridge on his way to school (emergency services at the scene)
It was the second incident of someone falling into the Thames this week, after a hero woman jumped into the River Thames to try and save a 13-year-old boy.
She heard screams when he fell from Tower Bridge on his way to school, according to witnesses.
The pupil was wearing his full uniform when he got off a bus as he made his way to The Ark Globe Academy in Southwark, London, on Tuesday at around 8am.
He and a friend had boarded the bus together but the youngster got off near Tower Bridge – ahead of his usual stop in Elephant and Castle – before falling into the river, the school’s principal said in a letter to parents.
Witnesses described hearing screams before one woman jumped into the water to try and save the boy.
Despite using a life-float to swim into the Thames, she was only able to recover his school jacket and school bag.
City of London Police confirmed officers have launched an ‘intensive search’ for the boy involving helicopter and marine searches but he has not yet been found.
The boy is thought to have celebrated his 13th birthday only last week. It is believed that a handwritten note was found at the scene.
