MARGATE -

(AP) - The body of one of two teenage swimmers missing from Atlantic City since last week has been found.

Authorities in Margate, a few miles south of Atlantic City, discovered the body of 16-year-old Kaliyah Hand of Atlantic City just after 5 a.m. Monday.

Her friend, 15-year-old Ramon Quinn of Pleasantville, tried to rescue her but was himself swept away on Thursday. He remains missing.

The pair went missing the same day that a 13-year-old girl died and her 12-year-old cousin was left on life support following a similar accident in Belmar.

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