OCEAN CITY, Md. - The drowning of a Mercersburg man Saturday morning was the first such incident in Ocean City since the summer of 1994, according to Beach Patrol Lt. Skip Lee.
Kenneth R. Angle, 55, who was on vacation with his wife of 32 years, Carol, was swimming alone Saturday morning near the shore when he was pulled out into the ocean. A rip current pulled him several hundred yards from shore, according to Ocean City police.
A vacationer heard Angle crying for help and called 911 at 9:46 a.m., about 15 minutes before lifeguards were scheduled to go on duty.
