Hurricane Cristobal churns surf along Jersey shore

Hurricane causes riptide warning

TRENTON, N.J. - The rip current risk remains high along the New Jersey coast as Hurricane Crisobal whips up waves that swept a teenager out to sea.

The National Weather Service said long period swells associated with Cristobal will continue to churn the ocean into Thursday evening.

Family members on Thursday will hold a funeral for the 17-year-old boy who died after he was rescued from the surf at an unguarded beach at Sandy Hook.

Relatives said Sarmard Rizvi was knocked down by a wave on Tuesday. Ali Rizvi said it was a heartbreaking scene once his cousin slipped.

Dozens of lifeguards recovered the South Plainfield resident, but he died at a hospital on Wednesday.
