Alaska Army National Guard rescues four boaters stranded on Kusk
The location (circled in red) of four stranded boaters on the Kuskokwim River is visible from the windshield of a UH-60L Black Hawk helicopter from 1st Battalion, 207th Aviation Regiment, Alaska Army National Guard, May 10, 2021. The helicopter aircrew rescued the four individuals and their dog after they became stuck on the river between Bethel and Kwethluk because of ice from break up blocking their egress. All four individuals and their dog were hoisted into the helicopter and transported back to Bethel safely. For this mission, the 207th AVN was awarded with four saves. (Courtesy photo by Spc.
