Man arrested for watching woman drown | New York Post

A Civil Guard spokesman said: “Around 3 a.m. on Sunday, several witnesses saw a couple on the beach and spotted the woman going into the water alone and the man staying on the shore.

“Moments later the woman appeared floating face-down near the shore and the man, when he saw this, left the scene without trying to help her or raise the alarm.”


Is there a duty to rescue in civil law? I don't happen to know.
