The teen's cousin, who also worked at the doughnut shop, realized something was wrong when Zeqiri failed to return. The boy later called for help after discovering his cousin in about 8 feet of water inside the cesspool.

By the time help arrived, the teen was no longer visible, police said.

"The family is very upset. I don't know what else to say...it's very bad," a relative at the family's Central Islip home told PIX News.

Officers from the Suffolk County Police Department's Emergency Services Section pulled the teen from the cesspool and took him to a hospital, where he was pronounced dead.

"Water came through one of the other pipes that was in there and that must have loosened his grip," said Larry Maher, who owns a pizza shop nearby. "He fell off it and he was splashing around and we were yelling come on hold on and... that was it."

An autopsy was scheduled later this week for the teen.
