FDNY responded to Kingsborough Community College where they were told a man was drowning in the ocean around 1:00 p.m.
When rescuers located the man about thirty minutes later, two firefighters plunged into the water and sifted him outÂ onto the rocks, placed him onto a backboard and loading him into an ambulance, FDNY said.
The man was transported to Coney Island Hospital in serious condition but is expected to live, authorities said.
It is not immediately clear if he was a student at Kingsborough Community College. The school had no comment.
