The title says it all: NYC girl, 12, drowns at Long Island beach – wcax.com & here is the Newsday story, for those who have access: Harlem schoolgirl on field trip drowns off Long Beach.
Mike, from insidelongbeach.com sent me this and wanted me to post it:
In this case, the school might have even been able to coordinate something with the City for the trip. While I feel the school is responsible for this one with the information at hand, the City can perhaps try to a do a better job with posting much more prominent signs that cannot be overlooked. If that were to save just one life, it would prove a worthy effort.
