    Juneau, Alaska (KINY) - The North Douglas ramp is open again after quick action to pull a boat trailer and the truck it was attached to out of the water.

    According to the Juneau Harbor Department, Melino’s Marine Services and Capital Towing responded on Friday morning, just as the 76th Golden North Salmon Derby was getting ready to start.

    "Please remember to use caution when launching your boats and always set the emergency brake," stated Harbormaster Matt Creswell in a post on social media.

    The Scuba Tank also assisted in the raising of the vehicle and trailer.

    According to John Melino, the truck and trailer were in water nearly 80 feet deep.
