A police marine unit is searching the icy Schuylkill River in Philadelphia after a man allegedly jumped off a bridge to escape officers chasing him.

Investigators said the man was nearby in 30th Street Station when he dropped a bag containing narcotics and a gun.

As Amtrak police officers pursued the man, they said he jumped off the Market Street Bridge and into the freezing water at around 2:30 p.m. Wednesday.

The man didn't surface and police are in boats searching for him.
