Man Drowned In Freak Boating Accident

A man drowned in Gravesend Bay on Sunday, after a freak accident left him helpless in the waters.

Police believe Florijan Kasumovic, 73, of New Jersey, may have fallen overboard just before 1:00 p.m., getting his leg caught in the railing. He dangled over the side of the 21-foot-vessel with his head submerged in the waters, unable to pull himself back up.

Kasumovic was dead when police arrived, and authorities towed the boat back to a Sanitation Department pier in Bath Beach.
