Clarification

September 20, 2006

An article in Saturday's Maryland section about the drownings of a Columbia man and his 15-year-old daughter off Ocean City on Thursday reported that Douglas and Amy Martin were the first water-related fatalities at the Atlantic resort this year. A man died in the surf near 126th Street in early July, but the death has not been classified as a drowning because the beach patrol was never notified of autopsy results, said Lt. Ward Kovacs, a beach patrol spokesman.
