Just when you thought it was safe..

Two brothers from Jamaica removed themselves from the gene pool on Sunday, August 14th, by jumping off of the American Legion Memorial Bridge in Martha's Vinyard, Massachusetts.

The bridge is a popular tourist attraction, having been featured in the 1975 shark thriller 'Jaws'.

The brothers, Tavaris and Tavaughn Bulgin were part of a group who jumped from the bridge Sunday night into 15 feet of water. Neither brother was able to overcome the current, and subsequently drowned.

Given this was two brothers who were reportedly good swimmers I'll allow it. Thanks, Vale.

To be fair, I'd probably have jumped as well! Thanks for the story
