#deepweb | Local Search and Rescue Assists Iditarod Mushers Stuck in Overflow – KNOM Radio Mission

Source: National Cyber Security – Produced By Gregory Evans

Nome Search and Rescue responded to the call to rescue three Iditarod mushers from overflow near the Solomon River late Friday morning.

Just before 9am Friday, Jim West Jr., the head of Nome Volunteer Ambulance Department, received a call from Mike Owens of the Iditarod Trail Committee. When West heard three teams were stuck in overflow he realized they would need more than just a group of snowmachiners to get them out. So, West contacted the Alaska State Troopers and Alaska National Air Guard.

Because we didn’t know how bad these guys were, if they were wet or hypothermic or if hypothermia had set in. They called RCC and RCC released the helicopter to us, I sent down two EMTs in the helicopter along with a couple of dog handlers from Iditarod and they flew down while the ground crew took off.”

The RCC is the Rescue Coordination Center.

West described the mushers Sean Underwood, Tom Knolmayer,
and Matthew Failor as having some minor injuries and signs of hypothermia.

“The one couldn’t feel his legs, probably frostbite on his toes. And nothing blistering or anything like that but when you spend so much time out there on the water the cold water just sucks everything right out of your body. You don’t have enough energy to do anything.”

The mushers were able to walk themselves to the
helicopter and be taken to Nome for medical treatment. Their encounter with
overflow was only part of a very difficult overnight trip in the winter storm.

“They said they had left White Mountain last night at about 11 and battled wet, soft snow and waist-deep water …”

Dog handlers mushed the teams of sled dogs to Safety Roadhouse where they could be examined by an Iditarod veterinarian before being transported to Nome. Iditarod Race staff are re-working the trail from Elim to Nome so that the remaining 11 teams can complete the 1,000 mile race.

Boca Raton-Based Child Rescue Coalition Works “To Find Those That Victimize Kids”

It is some of the most sophisticated and fascinating technology that you will ever see and it’s being used right here in South Florida – and across the country – to catch people sharing, viewing and even creating child pornography.

The tech is responsible for the headline-grabbing arrest over the summer of Carl Lechner, a longtime, trusted gymnastics coach in South Florida, who was involved in the lives of countless children.

According to Broward Sheriff’s Office detectives, Lechner had a strong interest in watching and viewing child pornography and he faces dozens of criminal charges.

CBS4 News is pulling back the curtain on what led to Lechner’s arrest – technology from the Child Rescue Coalition (CRC).
