Ruth Todd, spokesman for the LDS Church is reporting that “Elder Andrew Edward Page, age 18, from Charlotte, N.C., serving in the California Arcadia Mission since August 2013 died from injuries he sustained when he was struck by a vehicle while riding his bicycle.”  Additionally, Elder Colt Daniel Kunz, 20, of Victor, Idaho, died Wednesday while serving in the church’s Mexico Tampico Mission after coming in contact with a live electrical wire.

I’ve already documented a Missionary Shot in Columbia, a car accident in Idaho, missionary injured in train crash in Spain, and a missionary electrocuted in Guatemala.  With these 2 latest deaths, at least 12 missionaries have died this year;  the Salt Lake Tribune is asking, Are Missions Safe?
