Man disappears while swimming off NJ beach

ASBURY PARK, N.J. - September 1, 2010

Asbury Park Fire Department official Garrett Giberson says Franky Lezin was about 30 yards off the city's Second Avenue beach in approximately 10 feet of water when he disappeared Tuesday evening.

Lezin was swimming after lifeguards went off duty at 5 p.m.

A nephew and a third person who was with Lezin safely made it to shore. The nephew told police he grabbed a rope when the current was taking him out to sea.
