Body of teen swimmer swept away by current found; 2nd sought

MARGATE, N.J. (AP) — The body of one of two teenage swimmers swept away by a strong current and missing from Atlantic City, New Jersey, since last week has been found.

Authorities discovered the body of 16-year-old Kaliyah Hand on Monday morning in Margate, a few miles south of Atlantic City.

Kaliyah’s 15-year-old friend Ramon Quinn tried to rescue her but was himself swept away on Thursday. Police say both were pulled underwater by the current. Ramon remains missing.

Kaliyah was from Atlantic City. Ramon was from Pleasantville. They went missing the day a 13-year-old girl died and her 12-year-old cousin was left on life support following a similar accident in Belmar.

Both accidents happened after lifeguards had gone home for the day.
