The two men died after their 28-foot catamaran capsized in rough seas on Monday. Two other men survived after being rescued by nearby fishing vessels.

In Maryland, U.S. Coast Guard officials say two men died after their catamaran capsized northeast of Ocean City. Two other men survived after being rescued by nearby fishing vessels.

A helicopter air crew from the Coast Guard Station in Atlantic City, New Jersey recovered the bodies of two men, ages 53 and 65, who died when their 28-foot catamaran capsized in rough seas a little more than 30 miles off the coast of Ocean City, Md.

Two other men, both 55 years old, were rescued by a fishing boat that was nearby competing in the 40th annual White Marlin Open, the world's largest billfish tournament, which kicked off Monday morning in Ocean City.

Neither of the survivors were wearing lifejackets when they were pulled from the water, and Coast Guard officials say they are unsure at the this time what caused the wreck.

The survivors were taken to a Coast Guard Station in the Indian River Inlet in Delaware.
