GULF SHORES, Ala. (AP) -- Baldwin County authorities say a Georgia woman drowned after being caught in a rip current while swimming with her family in the Gulf of Mexico surf.

The Press-Register reports that 41-year-old Angie Laney of Carrollton, Ga., drowned Monday afternoon. Laney was pulled from the surf by her husband.
