JOINT BASE ELMENDORF-RICHARDSON, Alaska – Members of the Alaska Air National Guard saved an injured hunter yesterday afternoon after he fell from a steep slope late Sunday night, Aug. 16.

The hunters activated a SPOT device which was used by aircrew to pinpoint the exact location of the party within Rainy Pass, approximately 92 miles southeast of McGrath.

The hunter was found on Monday morning, treated and transported to Fairbanks Memorial Hospital shortly before 1 p.m. with multiple injuries and torn ligaments in one of his legs.
