Emergency crews are searching the waters off the Rockaways for a teenage girl. They were called to Beach 116th Street and the oceanfront just after 3:30 p.m. on a report of two teenage girls in distress.

Rescuers pulled one of the 16-year-old girls from the water.

She was taken to Peninsula Hospital where she was treated and released.

Coast Guard dive teams continued searching for the missing teen in a five-mile-wide area off of Rockaway Beach. The search was suspended around 7:30 p.m.

The search for the other teen will resume in morning.
