Lost Rockaways Swimmer's Body Believed Found

Monday night Anthony Bolden, his friend Jacob Ried, and his sister Sabrina Hicks were relaxing in Jacob Riis Park in the Rockaways when Ried, who'd gone swimming, was seen to struggle. Bolden tried to assist him, and wound up lost. The Coast Guard went looking for him, then called off its search, then expanded it. A body fitting his description has been recovered. "He decided to go save his best friend -- that's love," says his uncle, Luther Bolden. "I don't think you'll find many other people who'd make that same decision."
