JUNEAU, Alaska | Alaska plane survivor: ‘Thankful that I am alive’
JUNEAU, Alaska — Ginny Hacker Eiseman had spent the weekend reeling in a bounty of colorful fish at Steamboat Bay Fishing Club on remote Noyes Island in southeast Alaska. She was returning home to Ketchikan when the unthinkable happened.
The chartered Taquan Air flight that she and 10 others were on crashed Tuesday on a rocky mountainside near Ketchikan. All survived and were rescued hours later by the U.S. Coast Guard.
“For those wondering I’m alive,” she posted on Facebook after the rescue, noting that another woman with her was alive, too.
