Boyd, Ky. Minister Drowns in Mexico

A Kentucky minister has drowned while swimming in the Gulf of Mexico.

The Reverend Mark Angel was a youth minister at Russell Christian Church in Ashland in Northeastern Kentucky.

He drowned on June 3, 2007, while on a mission trip with college-age church members.

The 41-year-old was in the water with two others, when he apparently became caught in a rip tide and was swept into the gulf.
