Angell, Roy – Obituary

Drowned at Radium”

Unable to keep above the water after he had abandoned a tire tube to which he clung for support while learning to swim in the tank at Radium Springs, Roy Angell, 24 years old, a young rancher of Haines, was drowned Monday afternoon about 3:30 before others who were swimming in the pool could reach him.

Angell had gone off to a section of the pool alone. For a time he held to the edge of the pool but becoming a little more certain of his ability as a swimmer he abandoned all caution and struck out for himself.
