Three members of the Tokyo Metropolitan Fire Department jumped off a bridge into the sea at Kasai Seaside Park after they got drunk at a barbecue on Wednesday afternoon.
One of the three, a 20-year-old man, was pulled from the water by emergency responders and died shortly after being taken to the hospital. Another man, 22, sustained only minor injuries to his right leg, while the third member of the group was uninjured, Sankei Shimbun reported.
According to police, the three men were having a barbecue with two other colleagues at around 5 p.m., and had been consuming large amounts of alcohol. The five were all off duty.
Polices are questioning the remaining members of the group to learn more about the events leading up to the accident.© Japan Today
