Rescuers and divers are still searching the East River today for a 21-year-old male who went missing Thursday morning after strong currents swept him away.

The man dived in the river in celebration of his friends' graduating Bushwick Community High School in Brooklyn at around 6 a.m. this morning. There were six friends total hanging out in Williamsburg by the river. Three of the friends decided to jump in, but after the 21-year-old got swept by currents, the other two did not enter the water and called the authorities.

The rescuers are still in search of the missing man.
