      This evening at 6:30 pm the Long Beach Police Department received a call of swimmers in distress at National Blvd and the beach front. A subject was rescued shortly thereafter by an off-duty lifeguard and the subject informed them that his friend was still in the water. An extensive search and rescue was conducted utilizing the Long Beach Police Department, Long Beach Lifeguards, United States Coast Guard, Nassau County Aviation and the Nassau County Marine Bureau.  The subject was located after being submerged for approximately 1 hour, and he was transported to South Nassau Communities Hospital. Identification is being withheld until notification to the next of kin. The subject is a 23 year old male from Brooklyn. At 6pm all swimmers were ordered out of the ocean when lifeguards went off duty.  Subsequently, the subject chose to go back in the water and was caught in a rip tide. This is all the information we have at this time.
