Two men died and two others were rescued after the catamaran they took on a fishing trip capsized in the Atlantic Ocean off Ocean City, the U.S. Coast Guard said.
One of the two who died in the Aug. 5 incident was Fredy Fabricio-Castro, 57, of Silver Spring, the Coast Guard said. The other was identified as William Gogel, also 57, of Baltimore. No cause was given for the capsizing.
The names of the survivors, both 55 years old, were not given, and the 28-foot catamaran was not identified by name. However, the Coast Guard indicated that it was based in the Maryland-Delaware coastal area.
The capsizing, about 32 miles northeast of Ocean City, was reported to the Coast Guard about 9 a.m. by another boat in the area.
A Coast Guard rescue swimmer from a helicopter recovered the two victims. A civilian boat rescued the survivors, the Coast Guard said.
A fishing tournament was being held in the Ocean City area on the day of the incident, but the catamaran, with a home port listed as Indian River, Md., was not part of it, the Coast Guard said.
