Near Longfellow Bridge in Cambridge MA: What is going on?

Why are there dozens of emergency vehicles with lights flashing right now on the Cambridge side of the Longfellow Bridge (in MA)? Training? Incident? Other?

I couldn't find any mention of it on or and google terms elude me. Just curious.

For the curious, the Boston Fire Dept twitter seems to be the only official source reporting on this. No word yet whether the person survived.

Unfortunately it doesn't sound like the person survived - otherwise they would have said "rescue" instead of "recovery." (Just my guess, however, I could be wrong.)
