A tourist from California died atop Mt. Roberts Tuesday despite prolonged efforts to revive him. No foul play was suspected, said a Juneau Police Department spokesman.
Capital City Fire/Rescue was dispatched to the trail system behind the Mt. Roberts Tramway, above Juneau at about 2:15 p.m., to a report of CPR in progress, according to a press release from JPD.
The man, identified as Gary Alan Corb, 57, was pronounced dead at the scene, JPD Lt. David Campbell said. According to scanner traffic, a cardiologist visiting the popular tourist site was on hand and performed CPR for at least 45 minutes; his next of kin also was present. Campbell said an automated external defibrillator was used on Corb as well, with no success.
There was no sign of foul play or anything suspicious about Corb’s death, Campbell said Wednesday. His body has been sent to Anchorage for an autopsy, and the investigation is continuing.
