JUNEAU (AP) -- A 73-year-old tourist died Friday while on a hike in Southeast Alaska.
The Coast Guard identified the man as James Fullerton of Long Lake, Minn.
Fullerton was a passenger aboard the sightseeing vessel Observer.
According to the Coast Guard, the boat stopped at Phybus Bay, about 90 miles southwest of Juneau, and passengers ventured out on a day hike on Admiralty Island.
They say Fullerton collapsed during the hike and died, the Coast Guard said.
A Coast Guard helicopter airlifted his body to Sitka Friday afternoon.
