MASTIC BEACH, N.Y. (AP) - Police on Long Island are investigating the drowning death of a 48-year-old man at Smith Point County Park in Mastic Beach.

Police say Kerry Agosto, of Ronkonkoma, was found floating in the water unconscious near the shore just after noon on Monday. Police say a witness said Agosto had been swimming.

Police say a beachgoer pulled the swimmer out of the water and attempted CPR.

The man was taken to a hospital where he was pronounced dead.

This story has been corrected to show victim’s last name is spelled Agosto instead of Agosta per new information from police.
