The NY Daily News writes:
The Queens student was one of seven presumed drowning victims during a weekend of mayhem at city and Long Island beaches. The drownings appear to be linked to rip currents from "long-period" waves produced by winds out of the south, according to the National Weather Service.
There is also search for a 22-year old man who has also been missing after going swimming in Coney Island this past weekend.
