A woman jumped into the 39 degree waters of Gastineau Channel on Tuesday night and needed rescue. According to a Coast Guard news release, the 27-year-old was in a group when she jumped into the channel at the cruise ship terminal near the Taku Fisheries pier.
Bethel Search and Rescue needs help. The group says that about 70 percent of their calls come from the Bethel Police Department. Now Bethel Search and Rescue wants the police to match its resources with the organization’s services.
A disabled tug and barge was actually carrying 3.7 million gallons of fuel — more than three times that was initially reported by Canadian authorities. The vessels remained anchored awaiting clearance to proceed into U.S. waters.
