Guam - A local fisherman has died after being swept out at sea late Wednesday evening. According to Guam Fire Department public information officer Lt. Ed Artero, GFD units recovered the missing fisherman about two hours after the initial 911 call was made.
GFD could not provide any identification of the male individual only indicating he was possibly in his early 20's. GFD units along the U.S. Coast Guard were activated in search of the missing fisherman by Asan Memorial Park. Artero says three fisherman were out at sea when they experienced trouble with the current in which only two returned and one was swept out over the reef. No details could be provided of how far from the Asan Memorial Beach the male individual was found.
