Dispatch Text:

On May 25, 2022, at approximately 5:30 pm, the Alaska State Troopers were notified that a juvenile male had threatened another juvenile male with a firearm on the grounds of Wood River Elementary School in Fairbanks. Alaska State Troopers immediately responded to the school and located both juveniles in the area. After further investigation, Troopers determined that the firearm was actually an airsoft-style pellet gun that resembled a functioning firearm. It was determined that the suspect juvenile threatened the second juvenile by pointing the pellet gun at him, however, no pellets were actually fired from the weapon and neither party was injured. Troopers do not believe that either juvenile was a student at Wood River Elementary during the 2021-2022 school year. No classes were in session at the time of the incident, and there is no known connection to the school. The juvenile suspect was arrested by Troopers and turned over to Division of Juvenile Justice custody.

On 05/28/2022 at approximately 1834 hours, MATCOM received 911 calls advising of a plane that crashed into the Matanuska River near mile 99 of the Glenn Highway. The plane was occupied by three individuals including two adults and a 7-month-old child.

Nearby citizens witnessed the crash and immediately responded to assist where they found the airplane sinking into the river. Brett Winterbottom of Glacier View tethered himself to his ATV and swam into the Matanuska River and saved the adult male and 7-month-old child. Brett passed the baby to Tammy Saunders, a nurse who is visiting Alaska from Texas who was able to immediately render aid. 

The female occupant of the aircraft became separated and swam herself to shore on the opposite side of the river. Another citizen arrived in a helicopter, collected her, and transported her to her family.

LifeMed responded to the scene and assisted in transporting the female and the infant to the hospital.

AST would like to thank the citizens who provided immediate rescue efforts and saved these three individuals!
