Brooklyn Man Caught in Rip Current Drowns: Police

Lifeguards are warning swimmers about rip currents after a Brooklyn man drowned at Nassau County beach.

Long Beach police identified that man as 23-year-old Kashawn Carlos.

Carlos had gone into the water at Long Beach after 6 p.m. Saturday when swimmers were ordered out of the ocean because lifeguards are off-duty, police said. He was caught in a rip current and found about an hour later, police said.

Carlos was taken to South Nassau Communities Hospital where he was pronounced dead at about 8 p.m., police said.

His friend, who was also caught in the rip current, was rescued by an off-duty lifeguard, police said.

The drowning occurred near the south end of National Boulevard in Long Beach.
