OCEAN CITY, Md. (AP) - A Pennsylvania man drowned Saturday while swimming near the shore, Ocean City police said.
Kenneth Angle, 55, of Mercersburg, Pa. was swimming alone Saturday morning when a rip current pulled him several hundred yards from shore.
A vacationer heard Angle crying for help at 9:46 a.m., about 15 minutes before lifeguards were scheduled to go on duty.
But police said Angle drowned before Beach Patrol rescuers could reach him.
