A firefighter was killed Monday during a search for a man who went missing on Lake Norman over the weekend. Two other divers were also injured.

Officials have not said exactly what happened during the search, but confirmed that 28-year-old firefighter Bradley Long, who went into the water earlier Monday searching for a missing 29-year-old man, was killed.

Long, who worked at the Newton Fire Department, was a volunteer with Sherrills Ford-Terrell Fire and Rescue. He was working with Sherrills Ford during the search.

Rescue crews have been searching the lake since Sunday afternoon. Officials said the missing swimmer jumped off a boat Sunday with two other people. The boat wasn’t anchored and started to float away. The three tried to swim and catch up with the boat, but the missing man wasn’t able to make it back to the boat.

After suspending the search around 9:30 Sunday evening due to darkness, crews started searching again 8:30 Monday morning.

The names of the divers injured and their conditions have not been released, but officials said they are also from Sherrills Ford-Terrell Fire and Rescue. Officials said they were responsive when they were taken to the hospital.

The search for the missing man was suspended once Long went missing in the water. Officials confirmed the body of the missing man was recovered along with Long.
