FREEPORT — Luis Ochoa and Enma Valerio, both 45 years old, drowned after being swept out by the current at Bryan Beach about 5:35 p.m. Sunday, according to law enforcement.

“They were out on Bryan Beach enjoying the weather, and from what we could gather, the current kept taking them farther out,” Freeport Police Chief Raymond Garivey said.
