Published by: Digicert

On a rainy summer day in 2013, a small, float-equipped plane stalled while flying low over the mountains near Petersburg, Alaska. There were six passengers aboard, headed for a sight-seeing tour of the LeConte Glacier. While attempting a climb through the pass at Horn Cliffs, the pilot made a miscalculation, lost control of the craft, and the plane spun before pitching at the ground and smashing through the giant evergreens below.
Injured and stranded on steep terrain, the passengers who survived the fall couldn't hope to get off the mountain without help. Night was only a few hours away, and even in June, dark in Alaska would mean freezing temperatures in a place without cell signals or roads.
