3 feared dead as Alaska rescue helicopter crashes

Helicopter crashes

Authorities say three people are feared dead after an Alaska State Trooper helicopter crashed.

Trooper spokeswoman Megan Peters says the aircraft was carrying a state trooper, a pilot for the troopers and a rescued snow mobiler when it went down Saturday night.

She says the crash site was spotted yesterday, and no survivors have been found. She says that though the three are feared dead, their deaths haven't been confirmed.

Wreckage of the helicopter burned, but Peters said it was not known how the fire started or how long it lasted.
