9-year-old lost in hole and feared dead
A 9-year-old Fairbanks boy was snowmachining with his father Saturday afternoon on a glacier near the Arctic Man event when he fell into a hole estimated to be 150 feet deep and was believed lost under the snow, Alaska State Troopers said Sunday.
Troopers identified the child as Sjohn Brown and said he was presumed dead.
An emergency room doctor with climbing experience was lowered into the hole, and dug for about two hours, but couldn't find him, other rescuers said.
Rest the rest at the link. Our hearts go out to the family of this little one; such a tragic loss...
