No Sign Of Student Who Jumped Off Bridge

No Sign Of Student Who Jumped Off Bridge
A search for the body of 17-year-old John "JT" Haggerty is into the third day now.

Police said the popular South Jersey student athlete jumped off the Ben Franklin Bridge on Sunday.

That has left his family and friends frantic for answers.

As recovery crews continued to search the Delaware River Tuesday afternoon for any sign of 17-year-old JT Haggerty, his Haddonfield High School classmates were resigned to the fact that their friend, who police said leapt to his death from the Ben Franklin Bridge, would not be found alive.

Grief counseling was in its second day at the high school.

"Today in school, everyone was crying," student Drew Benson said. "I've never seen like this before in my life."

A star wide receiver and wrestler, Delaware River Port Authority Police are still trying to figure out why the honor student reportedly drove into the path of a Philadelphia police officer early Sunday morning in Old City and led officers on a chase.

Police said Haggerty brought his Lexus to a stop on the Ben Franklin Bridge before getting out and jumping 140 feet to the icy water below. He has not been seen since.

"He was a great kid," Haddonfield School Superintendent Joe O'Brien said.
