An Alaska Army National Guard helicopter trying to rescue people on Knik Glacier tipped over Tuesday after an icy landing, a Guard spokesman said.
The three crew members of the UH-60 Black Hawk were not injured, said Maj. Guy Hayes, spokesman for the Guard. Winds reaching 70 miles per hour, rain and overcast skies made the mission difficult.
Crews must now reach the three crew members and nine others the helicopter was trying to rescue.
