Authorities fished the unconscious body of Vladislav Cheloudko, 41, out of the Rockaway Inlet behind Kingsborough Community College yesterday afternoon, in what appears to be a boating excursion gone bad.
Police arrived at the Manhattan Beach-based school (2001 Oriental Boulevard) at approximately 5:00 p.m. Sunday. He was rushed to Coney Island Hospital, where he was pronounced dead.
Police are investigating Cheloudko’s death, but said it was possible the man had been kayaking or sailing and lost control of his vessel, a spokesman said.
The medical examiner will determine his cause of death.
Cheloudko, a Brooklyn resident, was pulled from the waters behind Kingsborough’s Marine Center. According to News 12, he was unconscious at the time of his removal from the water, and police attempted CPR before transporting him to the hospital.
Daily News reports that he was “found upside down in the waters.”
