- ANCHORAGE, Alaska - Alaska State Troopers say two rescuers used CPR to revive a man who stopped breathing after getting thrown from a raft into cold water near Coffee Point. The Anchorage Daily News reports that wildlife trooper Jason Ball and state public safety technician Shawn Olsen were in Egegik for commercial fisheries enforcement when they noticed a commotion Thursday afternoon. On the beach they found an unconscious man who wasn't breathing. He was later identified as 54-year-old California resident Jose Orendez. Orendez and his adult son had been motoring to shore in a raft from their 32-foot fishing boat when the raft flipped. Both were wearing flotation devices and the son made it to shore, but Orendez was caught on a setnet running line for a time.
