Two kayakers say they nearly died, but now they've been cited for trespassing. (Via Getty Images)
The pair of 21-year-old kayakers are telling New York City media their vessel flipped in Jamaica Bay early Saturday morning. They were able to grab onto a pier and get to safety -- problem is the pier is property of JFK International Airport.
In 2012, a different waterway breach made headlines. (Via Getty Images)
As ABC reported, a man who had problems with his jet ski swam to shore, scaled a fence, crossed runways and walked into a terminal to get help.
That man went undetected by a security system valued at at least $100 million.
Now again, two years later, the same headlines. (Via USA Today)
It's a system that even those using it don't believe in. A spokesperson for the Port Authority's police union told the New York Post: “Once again a perimeter security breach at JFK Airport raises serious concerns about the Port Authority’s Perimeter Intrusion Detection System, a system the PAPBA believes is a failure."
Though the Port Authority itself has a different story, telling CBS: "The kayakers did not breach the secure airfield. They were seeking help in a restricted water area and at a light pier."
But all this comes not long after other seemingly scary security breaches in New York City. Just days ago, American flags atop the Brooklyn Bridge were replaced with white ones. The incident is under investigation. (Via CNN)
And in September a group of men base-jumped off the Freedom Tower. (Via New York Daily News)
The kayakers were not actually arrested, but were cited. They were also treated for hypothermia.

It's been exactly one month since a beloved teacher in Newton was murdered and still no arrests have been made.
Maggie Daniels was found dead in her apartment in Newton on Saturday, June 28.
At least two different people at the complex saw her around lunchtime the day before, taking her trash out.
Police still have not released her cause of death but did execute three search warrants in the case on Saturday -- searching an apartment near where she lived.
Channel 9 is asking what police were looking for at the home they just searched and will have all those details on Eyewitness News starting at 5 p.m.
