Two New York Hasidic men from the Satmar community of Kiryas Joel have been pronounced dead in North Miami Beach Tuesday night, in an apparent drowning accident. 

Rabbi Yitzhak Rosenberg and businessman Haim Parnes drowned, Kikar HaShabbat reports, after they were pulled out by a riptide.

Three others in the group suffered injuries and are listed in moderate to serious condition in local hospital.  

Satmar leaders have asked the community to pray for the well-being of the survivors.
