Angel Overseer question

My son attackes with a 6/6 creature and I block with Angelic Overseer, does the Angel die since it's indestructible?
If it's indestructible, it won't be destroyed by lethal damage.

Angelic Overseer is only indestructible as long as you control a human.
An indestructible creature cannot be destroyed. Only three things in Magic cause destruction: 1) effects that use the word "destroy", 2) lethal damage marked on a creature, 3) damage to a creature from a source with deathtouch. Those are the things indestructible helps against.

Your Angelic Overseer lives. Be careful, though! If you lose control of your last human during that same turn and thus you angel loses the indestructability, the still lethally damaged Overseer will be destroyed. Marked damage stays on permanents until it gets removed in the cleanup step or until an effect removes it (regeneration, totem armor).
I forgot to say that I DID have 3 humans on the field too!  Thanks for the quick replies.
