Responders help Minnesota couple down Alaska mountain

Email

ANCHORAGE, Alaska (AP) — A Minnesota couple was escorted down a steep and icy mountain in Alaska after calling for help.

Alaska State Troopers say 35-year-old Edwin H. Lee and 28-year-old Sarah E. Lee of Rochester, Minn., placed a 911 call Wednesday afternoon to say they needed help descending Mount Marathon.

Every July Fourth, an extreme race is held on the 3,022-foot peak in the town of Seward, about 110 miles south of Anchorage.
