CCFR honors three

    (L-R) Scott McCutheon, Blake Bixby and Nikki Lahnum

    Juneau, Alaska (KINY) Scott McCutheon, Blake Bixby and Nikki Lahnum were honored for saving a life at Mendenhall Lake in early January.

    Capital City Firemen presented the lifesaving award for the heroic act.

    The fire department held a lecture and demonstration on ice rescue Saturday at the Mendenhall Glacier Visitor Center.

    The trio was on hand when the man fell through the ice.  They used a rope to pull him from the icy water and then moved him to safer ground.

    CCFR said Juneau is fortunate to have these individuals who went out of their way to save another person's life.
