Body recovered on NC coast is lost NY boy
COROLLA, N.C. — Authorities say they have recovered the body of a 12-year-old New York boy who disappeared in rough surf along North Carolina’s Outer Banks.
The Currituck County Sheriff’s Office said Tuesday that a person walking on the beach at Corolla found the body shortly after dawn. The sheriff’s department says Chance William Cosgrove’s family has been notified.
The body of the Pearl River, N.Y., boy was found about a mile north of the spot he went missing Friday while boogie-boarding with his father and uncle. All three were knocked down by a wave.
A Coast Guard spokesman said the approaching Tropical Storm Danny had created strong undertows which pulled swimmers to the water’s bottom.
