CONEY ISLAND - Police have recovered the bodies of two Jet Skiers who went missing last night in Coney Island Creek behind Kaiser Park.

Witnesses say 29-year-old Celine Fu fell off the Jet Ski driven by 44-year-old Michael Tom. They were both declared missing after Tom jumped in to save her and did not resurface.

Police and the Coast Guard spent the night and Friday morning searching for them. They confirmed that they found the two bodies this afternoon.

A local resident said called the water behind Kaiser Park "dangerous," saying that people are not aware of the strong undercurrent.

Police are investigating what led to the double drowning.
