Authorities say the death of a 20-year-old man who jumped off an upstate New York bridge has been ruled an accidental drowning.

The Broome County Sheriff’s Office tells local media that Brian Lanzo of Endicott was visiting friends in the hamlet of Harpursville Saturday afternoon when he jumped off a railroad bridge that spans the Susquehanna River about 15 miles east of Binghamton.

The friends saw him having trouble in the cold water before he disappeared and didn’t resurface.

A search involving boats, a police helicopter and divers was launched soon after but his body wasn’t found until Sunday morning a short distance from the bridge.

Local police have issued a warning against swimming or jumping into swift-running rivers and streams this time of year.
