I was just reading through one of our May features that included snowmachine transporting through the Arctic, so it hurt to see the news that three people died in Alaska when two machines carrying them fell through the ice.
Here’s KTUU with more:
AST says the accident was reported to Kotzebue Troopers around 1 am Monday after two snowmachines carrying “several travelers” fell through the ice.
One of the travelers was able to reach Noatak and contacted Troopers who arranged a search and rescue effort. One person was reported dead and two others missing.
