Hyattsville man identified as drowning victim near Sandy Point State Park

A man from Hyattsville, Maryland, was identified as the man who drowned off the coast of Sandy Point State Park on Sunday, according to police.

Maryland Natural Resources Police said that William Enrique Villatoro, 43, was overtaken by the current after he jumped off his family’s boat to cool off in the Chesapeake Bay early Sunday afternoon.

Villatoro was found by another boat, which pulled him out of the water and took him to the marina. There, police and emergency personnel attempted to revive Toro, but were unsuccessful.
