Man jumps into Kalamazoo River in Calhoun County, prompting brief search
CALHOUN COUNTY, Mich. (NEWSCHANNEL 3) - Search crews were back on the Kalamazoo River, in Calhoun County this morning, after a man jumped into the water.
Overnight, Emmett Township Public Safety officials responded to the Kalamazoo River, near Beadle Lake Road, just outside of Battle Creek.
A lieutenant tells us a couple was fighting and the boyfriend jumped off a bridge, into the river.
The department searched the water for an hour, and soon learned the man had made it out safely.
This is the third incident on the river in the last two weeks.
On Friday, a car plunged into the river in Battle Creek, killing two men.
Crews recovered another car last weekend, but they are still searching for the driver.
