The man rescued from Mount Juneau Friday has been identified as 57 year old Tim Haugh of Juneau.
Alaska State Troopers say he was hiking on the Mount Juneau Trail. Losing his balance while crossing a section covered in snow, the man slid approximately 200 feet down the mountain. He was able to call 911 from his cell phone around 9:30 a.m. Good Samaritans on the mountain also stopped to assist. Capitol City Fire and Rescue (CCFR) and Juneau Mountain Rescue (JMR) responded with the assistance of a local helicopter company.
Haugh was transported by helicopter to a local hospital for non-life-threatening injuries.
A rescue is underway for a man that has fallen from Mt. Juneau.
News of the North received a call from Bruce Bowler with the Southeast Alaska Dogs for Organized Ground Search (SEADOGS) Friday morning around 11:00.
"We have a man who fell from the top of Mt. Juneau a hundred and some odd feet.", said Bowler. "He is stuck. He is injured. We have Temsco Helicopters who is in the process of getting ready to put a couple of mountain rescue people on their way. The state troopers are coordinating the activity and it's going to be visible to everybody Downtown."
