Police in Wuhan, Hubei Province still haven't found the bodies of two young people who jumped off the Yangtze River Bridge at around noon Wednesday.

At that time, a reporter was taking photos of smog when someone yelled that there was someone in the river. The reporter saw one person struggling in the water and at that moment another person stepped over the guard rail and jumped into the river.

The reporter clicked the camera shutter and called the police at once. In less than 10 seconds, the two young people had already been swallowed by the river. On the scene of the accident, there were only two black jackets, one handbag, one bottle of water and a lighter left. The identities of the pair are unknown.

In two minutes police arrived with a motor boat to search. They searched until 6 pm without finding the bodies.
