Charles DeVoe, 28, was pulled from the ocean in Rockaway, New York, after his ankle strap became snagged on a wooden pole.
He had been under the water for several minutes before rescuers managed to cut him free on November 12.

DeVoe had worked for fashion houses such as Dolce & Gabbana and Abercrombie & Fitch. He had featured in magazines including Vogue.
After the accident he was taken to the New York-Presbyterian Columbia University Medical Center, where his family remained with him for the past month. He died last Friday.
Mr DeVoe was from Philadelphia but moved to New York in 2004 to pursue a career in modelling after graduating from the University of Colorado at Boulder.

He signed to Major Model Management and posed for fashion photography heavyweights like Bruce Weber, Steven Klein and Mario Testino.
Aside from his work with D&G and Abercrombie & Fitch, Mr DeVoe had featured in campaigns for Anne Klein, Buffalo Jeans, and alongside Brazilian bombshell Gisele Bundchen for Stefanel.
His face graced the pages of magazines such as Details, GQ, Vogue Nippon, V Magazine, and Arena Hommes Plus.

Family members said Mr DeVoe was athletic from a young age and was very interested in adrenaline sports such as snowboarding, BMX biking and – most recently – surfing.
Initially it had seemed that Mr DeVoe’s condition was improving after the accident, according to policeman Eddie Roth.
‘[The signs] were encouraging,’ Mr Roth said. ‘His brain swelling had gone down, his lungs and kidneys were responding and he was responding to [the treatment].

'It's a shame – everyone loved him around here.’
His parents, David and Laura Lane DeVoe, who had been keeping a vigil by their son’s bedside, said: ‘He will greatly missed. This is very hard for us.’

'We are all devastated at this loss,' said Jason Kanner, a spokesman for Major Model Management, the agency who signed Mr DeVoe.
'This was a tragic and senseless loss, a horrific accident that has deeply affected all that knew and loved and cared for him.
‘[He was] a lovely kid who was respected and loved by many.’
Mr DeVoe's body was cremated on Sunday in New York.
