Dead Body Found In Coney Island’s Waters

Evidence at the scene - two duffel bags, a bottle of Jack Daniels and a camera with pictures of a couple - suggests two people were at the beach.

The dead body of a man in his 20s was found in the Coney Island surf on Tuesday morning.

Though the incident is still under investigation, police believe the victim was a man who had gone for a late-night, alcohol-induced swim with a friend, according to the Daily News. Authorities found two duffel bags and a bottle of Jack Daniels in the sand when they arrived at the scene.

A search party began combing the waters for a second body, as police believed the friend also drowned. However, they later identified him and found him at home. The friend said that he had left the victim at the beach – alive – and returned home because he felt ill.

The body was discovered around 6:40 a.m., when a passerby saw it floating near West 19th Street.
