12-Year-Old Girl Drowns on Field Trip to the Beach

A 12-year-old girl died in a drowning accident while on a field trip to the beach with her 6th grade class. There were no lifeguards on duty at the time. The accident occurred on Long Beach, Long Island.

The girl was swept out into the ocean by a strong current right after a group of students darted into the ocean. Her teacher attempted to rescue her, but eventually, she needed to be rescued as well. A helicopter search was initiated, and it took an hour and a half for rescuers to find her.

The beaches on Long Beach, Long Island open every summer on Memorial Day. However, lifeguards are only on duty during the weekends for the first few weeks of the season. Starting this weekend, there will be lifeguards on duty during the week as well.
