Later, a similar incident occurred on the Moskovskyi bridge. According to witnesses, a man jumped off the bridge. Divers examined the scene as well as surface waters within the area, but failed to find the suicide. As assumed, the body could get under the ice. Because of a strong ice drift posing threat to rescuers' lives, they could not proceed with searching.
