Juneau Police say one man is dead and a woman is injured after falling over a cliff into Kowee Creek on Douglas Island.
Officers say they heard a woman yell for help just after two o’clock Sunday morning as they were responding to disturbance on Foster Avenue.
They found an 18-year old woman who had fallen off 80-foot cliff into the creek.
Firefighters arrived and transported the woman to the hospital for treatment of her injuries.
The body of a 22-year old man was found nearby. He’s been identified as Evan Marshall Smith.
Juneau Police did not immediately identify the man or the woman pending notification of their relatives.
The investigation into the incident continues.
