The second of two teenage boys pulled from the Bronx River on Friday has died.

Montefiore Hospital says Wellington Gabin died Sunday.

The 13-year-old was the first to be pulled out of the water near Starlight Park.

His cousin, 13-year-old Erickson Villa, was pulled from the water shortly afterward.

Villa was pronounced dead a few hours later.

Police say the two teens may have jumped in to go swimming, even though it is prohibited in that particular area.
