Search Called Off For Drownings At Coney Island

The Coney Island waters has still not released the bodies of two who are presumed drowned. Akira Johnson, disappeared Saturday while swimming in Coney Island.

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.
