Maryland Natural Resources Police tell news outlets 50-year-old Melquicedec Coreas-Gomez and his two friends had gone fishing at Sandy Point State Park and pulled into a beach boat ramp Friday night.

Fire Lt. Jennifer McKee says he died at a hospital and that it seemed like an accident.

Thomson says all three men had been drinking, and that Coreas-Gomez could not swim and was not wearing a life jacket.
