Alaska Man Killed After Being Partially Buried By Avalanche

first_imgTroopers requested a medical flight from the Alaska Air National Guard, which deployed a Pave Hawk helicopter and a fixed wing aircraft from Joint Base Elmendorf-Richardson to the avalanche site, located about 9 miles (14 kilometers) southwest of the city of Whittier. It wasn’t immediately clear if each person had their own snowmobile or if people had doubled up to ride near the glacier. Alaska State Troopers identified the victim of the Wednesday afternoon accident as Chad Christman. He was part of a group of people riding snowmobiles near Blackstone Glacier, about 60 miles (96 kilometers) southeast of Anchorage, Lt. Col. Candis Olmstead with the Alaska National Guard said in an email. The avalanche caught six of the snowmobilers. “Five were OK, but one person had to be dug out,” she wrote. Two witnesses on snowmobiles reported to troopers that they saw Christman buried by the avalanche. “When they arrived at Blackstone Glacier, at 4,800-foot (1,463-meter) elevation, a landing area for the helicopter had been stamped into the snow by the snowmachine group,” Olmstead wrote. Snowmachines are what Alaskans call snowmobiles. “When the avalanche stopped, Christman was only partially buried,” troopers said in a web posting. “The two men and other people in the area were able to dig Christman out. CPR was started.” Facebook0TwitterEmailPrintFriendly分享ANCHORAGE, Alaska (AP) — A 41-year-old Anchorage man driving a snowmobile in Alaska’s backcountry died after being partially buried by an avalanche, officials said Thursday. Christman was transported to an Anchorage hospital but didn’t survive, troopers said. It wasn’t immediately clear what caused the avalanche or how big it was. A message sent to the Chugach National Forest Avalanche Information Center wasn’t immediately returned Thursday.last_img read more

Etihad conditions set speed bumps for debtladen Jets resolution plan

first_imgTime is running out for the troubled Naresh Goyal-promoted private airline Jet Airways as the interim funding plans that could validate the debt resolution plan has hit fresh turbulence.Jet’s strategic partner Etihad Airways reportedly set stiff conditions for backing the resolution for converting debt into equity at an extraordinary general meeting last week. The indifference of Abu Dhabi-based United Arab Emirates (UAE) national carrier that holds 24 percent stake in the debt-laden Indian carrier could delay a deal to bail out Jet, cobbled together by a State Bank of India (SBI)-led consortium of lenders. Further delay in implementing the debt resolution plan will push Jet further into the problem with its creditors and affect its daily operations.A final decision on a proposal from the consortium to lend another Rs 500-crore to the ailing airline is pending, according to media reports. The lenders may also seek additional securities, including share pledges or guarantees from promoters for sanctioning the loan, media reports say.On February 21, the airline’s shareholders approved five enabling resolutions to convert its debt into equity, appoint lenders’ nominees on the board, and increase the authorised share capital of the company, according to a report in Business Standard.The EGM passed the resolution with the support of about 97 percent of the shareholders though Etihad abstained from voting, the website said citing unnamed sources. According to them, Etihad is waiting for clarity on the funding from the SBI and the state-owned National Investment and Infrastructure Fund (NIIF). The Gulf carrier has been pushing for SBI and the NIIF to own 51 percent by investing an additional Rs 2,200 crore.Etihad’s demand for a right of first refusal (RoFR) after one year is apparently a sticking point with the SBI for resolving the issue. The Gulf-based carrier also wants the SBI to get a confirmation from market regulator Securities and Exchange Board of India (Sebi) that the right, if exercised, would not trigger the mandatory open offer, the report says. However, Sebi norms make it mandatory for investors to make an open offer to shareholders if their shareholding goes beyond a threshold. According to reports, Etihad will bring in further capital under the bank-led resolution plan that seeks to bridge an Rs 8,500-crore gap.However, lenders’ sources said they would be meeting shortly for converting part debt into equity and other elements of the resolution plan.Sources with direct knowledge of the negotiations have rejected reports that the SBI is planning to move insolvency proceedings against Jet before the National Company Law Tribunal as the airline’s daily operations get more and more hampered, imperilling its financial and operational viability.The Jet pilots have threatened to keep off the cockpits if they are not paid before March 1, further complicating the matter for the beleaguered airline, according to a report.last_img read more

Regulators Reviewing Drilling Rig Safety Rules

first_imgU.S. Coast GuardAnchor-handling tugboats battle the blazing remnants of the off shore oil rig Deepwater Horizon.A man from Katy, Texas is still unaccounted for after an oil rig explosion in Louisiana. The U.S. Coast Guard suspended its search for Timothy Morrison on Monday. The incident comes amid a broader re-thinking of drilling rig safety rules. The explosion happened in Louisiana waters, and the platform wasn’t subject to federal regulations.Still, being on any rig is inherently dangerous. We know that from the Deepwater Horizon disaster, and regulators are rethinking rules designed to keep that scale of an explosion from happening again.“The ultimate goal is to identify ways to remove or reduce some of the burden on the industry,” said Greg Julian, a spokesperson for the Bureau of Safety and Environmental Enforcement, which is handling the review.At a September forum in Houston, the Bureau heard recommendations from oil and gas companies. The American Petroleum Institute has a 50-page list of parts of the rule it wants deleted or changed. Companies say it costs time and money, and the administrative burdens distract from a focus on safety.Alexandra Adams, with the Natural Resources Defense Council, doesn’t agree.“This review is just simply bad policy and puts workers, and our resources, at risk,” she said.There’s still no timeline on when the Bureau’s review will be completed.
