Those helicopters you have been hearing were involved in a search for a drowning victim.

Officials say that a group of nine men who were trying to cool off decided to go for a late-night swim off the City Island coast, but only eight returned to shore.

The U.S. Coast Guard spent the day yesterday searching for victim 26-year-old Brian Johnson after going for a swim with his other friends around 11 p.m. Wednesday. They fear Johnson may have drowned.
