After Friday's dangerous day where two people drowned and two others were missing off NYC and Long Island beaches, more people were caught by the waters. In Long Beach, 29-year-old man was struggling in the waters; though lifeguards reached him quickly, he died on the way to the hospital. And off Coney Island, a 10-year-old girl is still missing of the waters while another child was pulled from the same waters earlier in the day. The Coast Guard said, ""The undertows and rip tides have been particularly strong around the beaches for the past few weeks. The Coast Guard continues to urge the public to use caution while enjoying the water in areas known for rip tides."
