MIAMI (AP) -- An Orlando man heading to Miami Beach with friends for Memorial Day weekend died after jumping from a causeway bridge.

Miami police say 22-year-old David C. Cardona was riding with friends Friday morning when they pulled onto the shoulder of MacArthur Causeway. The friends told police that when the vehicle stopped, Cardona got out, climbed onto a railing and jumped into the water below.

The friends called police when Cardona didn't resurface. Police and fire rescue divers responded and found Cardona's body several hours later.

It's not clear why Cardona jumped, but investigators believe alcohol may have been involved. No foul play is suspected.
