DETAILS OF THE INCIDENT

Aisha Mohammed, 18, and Zainab Mohammed, 17, both originally from Nigeria but now living in the Bronx, were reported missing on Friday night, July 5, in the area of Stillwell Avenue and Boardwalk West after they were seen entering the water and disappearing from view, the NYPD said. 

Police say at around 8 p.m. Friday, the sisters were swimming at Stillwell & Boardwalk West on Coney Island when they disappeared. 

Witnesses told WABC-TV that a rain storm began and most people at the beach took shelter, but the two young women went into the rough ocean water. 

MAN WANTED TO HELP BUT ..

A man tried to stop them but he couldn’t swim either, one witness said. It is unclear if the man knew the victims.

A relative of theirs told News 12 they were at the beach that day with six of their cousins.

Police said that an emergency call for a water rescue came in at around 8.10pm.
