Crews find body of third BK drowning victim
Divers found the missing body of a Brooklyn man Monday morning in the waters of an upstate lake.
Two Brooklyn teenagers drowned and a 20-year-old friend survived after their boat tipped over while they were fishing Sunday near the Catskills hamlet of Smallwood. Divers had found the bodies of 19-year-old Domenico Coluccio and 18-year-old Anthony Dupont after the boat capsized. The search for 20-year-old Carlo Milito was suspended Sunday night, but resumed early Monday.
Twenty-year-old Gianfranco Generoso managed to swim ashore after the incident. He says the boat capsized after one of the men stood up. Officials say none of the men were wearing life vests. Sullivan County Sheriff Michael Schiff says the four men are cousins. Schiff says the men were visiting relatives in the area to go fishing on Mountain Lake.
