Calif. Border Agents Pull Bodies Of 2 Men From Surf

SAN DIEGO (AP) — U.S. Border Patrol agents in San Diego have pulled two men’s bodies from the ocean just north of the Mexican border.

The San Diego County Medical Examiner’s Office said Sunday that an agent conducting patrols along Border Field State Park saw a body floating in the surf just after 7 a.m. Saturday.

Agents pulled the 49-year-old man to shore and he was pronounced dead.

Minutes later, agents saw another man’s body in the water, pulled him to shore and pronounced him dead.

The coroner identified him as 34-year-old Oscar Javier Andrade Aguirre but did not release his hometown.

San Diego County sheriff’s Lt. Jim Walker says it appears the men drowned. He says investigators are looking into whether the men were two people reported missing while swimming in Tijuana.
