Corpus Christi first responders are searching for a man who jumped into the river.

The incident happened just after 2:30 pm Monday afternoon near Labonte Park.

First responders say a group of people were fishing on the railroad tracks and when a train came down the tracks, everyone jumped off of the railroad and into the water.

They say they are looking for a forty-year-old man who was last wearing khaki pants.

This is a developing story and we will update when we have the latest details.
