Posted: Updated:

ATLANTIC CITY, N.J. (AP) - Authorities have recovered the body of the second teenager who was swept away by a strong current while swimming off Atlantic City.

Police say a person walking on the beach near Morris Avenue Thursday discovered the body of 15-year-old Ramon Quinn of Pleasantville.

Authorities say Quinn attempted to rescue 16-year-old Kaliyah Hand of Atlantic City from a rip current as the teens swam on June 15. They were pulled under.

Hand's body was recovered on Monday in Margate, a few miles south of Atlantic City.

The teens went missing on the same day a 13-year-old girl and her 12-year-old cousin were rescued from a rip current in Belmar. The girls died.
