Woman dies after being found on Juneau trail
A 61-year-old Juneau woman has died after being found unconscious on a trail.
Reports say the woman was identified Monday by her employer, Bartlett Regional Hospital, as Sandra Gelber.
She was a physical therapist at Bartlett.
Two hikers found her body Sunday afternoon in a creek along the Salmon Creek Dam Trail behind the hospital. They pulled her out and administered CPR unless medics arrived. She was pronounced dead about 30 minutes after being found.
Bartlett spokesman Jim Strader says it isn't known how long she was on the trail before she was found.
Police are investigating the death.
