A mother and son were rescued from the Atlantic Ocean off Brooklyn, and the son is now facing charges.

Police released a video of the rescue yesterday afternoon.

They say a 21-year-old man went for a swim in the Coney Island Boat Basin, and his mother followed him into the water.

They both got swept out by the current.

An NYPD helicopter and divers were called out.

The mother was pulled up in a rescue basket, but the son, who police say was drunk, started to fight with the divers. They had to swim him back to shore.

He's been charged with resisting arrest and disorderly conduct. ClientIP:, UserAgent: CCBot/2.0 ( Profile: TWCSAMLSP
