First-responders to the small-plane crash Monday that killed former Alaska Sen. Ted Stevens and four others described a harrowing crash site and a miserable, perilous night tending to survivors' broken bones amid a huge slick of fuel that coated a muddy mountainside.
The former chief of NASA and three fellow survivors spent a perilous night in harsh weather on an Alaska mountain waiting for a search-and-rescue team to arrive, as officials offered fresh details of the Monday crash of a small plane that killed former Sen. Ted Stevens and four others.
Mr. Tucker said as he helped shuttle a doctor and two emergency technicians to the scene about three hours after the crash, he saw one survivor still strapped in the front seat with the nose of the plane disintegrated.
Tom Tucker, who piloted the first rescue plane, said he arrived at the scene Monday at about 7 p.m. local time to airplane wreckage, fuel, rainy weather, dead bodies and frightened survivors who had planned on an idyllic fishing vacation.
