NEW YORK (AP) - Police have identified a teenager who died after being pulled from rough water off a New York City beach.

Police say 19-year-old Rudra Gurung drowned Wednesday afternoon off Rockaway Beach in Queens.

Fire department divers found the Queens teen face down in the water about 50 yards from the shore, near the end of a rock jetty.

Officials say there were no lifeguards on duty at the time. City beaches do not open until Saturday.
