Body of Young Boy Found on Margate Beach


Recovery crews have been in Margate all morning, and have found a body in the surf off the Huntington Avenue beach.

The belief here is that the body is that of the 10-year-old boy who disappeared after getting caught in a rip current off an Atlantic City beach.

6 ABC (WPVI-TV) reported around 4:20 this Wed. afternoon that authorities confirm the body discovered is that of Khitan Devine, who disappeared in rough waters off Martin Luther King Boulevard on Sunday night after life guards had gone off duty.

The Press of Atlantic City has reported that Fire and Emergency workers responded to the Huntington Avenue beach about 11:30 a.m. for the body of a juvenile that lifeguards saw floating in the surf, a few yards from shore.

Coast Guard and Atlantic City Fire & rescue crews searched for the boy Sunday night and most of Monday before officially calling off the search late Monday afternoon.  The search covered 85 square miles from Atlantic City down to Longport.

The missing boy’s stepmother, Rosemary Brown, said she, Devine and her daughter were met with a strong current while swimming.  “It was a current that pulled us under,” Rosemary Brown told WPVI-TV.  A shaken Brown says Good Samaritans managed to get to her and her daughter.
