Divers Search for Man Off Queens Coast
NEW YORK (AP) - Divers are searching for a man who disappeared in the waters off the Rockaway Peninsula in a mishap that also left a female swimmer in critical condition.
The hunt for the missing man in his mid 30s began at around 8:20 a.m. Saturday when dispatchers got an emergency call about two people in the water near Beach 9th Street and Seagirt Avenue in Queens.
A female was pulled from the water and taken to St. John's Queens Hospital. Authorities say she was either in her teens or early 20s.
The divers were searching in the East Rockaway Inlet.
I hope for the woman's sake that she was taken somewhere else...
