An all-terrain vehicle loaded with three people tipped in Butte Creek last Friday and one person was later pulled out dead.

Two made it to shore, but the body of Philip Douthit, 57, of Eagle River was found later under a log downstream.

The accident happened near the Alpine Creek Lodge on the Denali Highway.  Helicopters from Joint Base Elmendorf-Richardson and the State Troopers conducted the search.
