A 13-year-old schoolboy fell from London’s Tower Bridge into the River Thames and is missing, according to reports.

The student, who attended Ark Globe Academy, was traveling with a friend on a bus Tuesday when he got off the vehicle early near the iconic bridge and reportedly fell in the river.

A woman dove in to save the student, who was screaming for help, but she was only able to grab his school jacket and bag, a witness told the Mirror.

Ark Globe executive principal Matt Jones called the incident “distressing news.”

“It is with worry that I share news about [the boy], a Year 8 student at Ark Globe Academy,” Jones wrote in a letter to parents, according to Yahoo News.

“On the morning of Tuesday, April 20, [he] did not make his way into school despite travelling on a bus with a friend in full school uniform,” the school administrator said.

The boy is a student at Ark Globe Academy.

“He got off the bus near Tower Bridge before his usual bus stop nearest to Ark Globe Academy and fell into the River Thames. At this moment in time, police are treating this case as a ‘missing persons’ incident,” the principal said
