ANCHORAGE - A 43-year-old snowmobiler from Anchorage died of an apparent heart attack northwest of Talkeetna.

Alaska State Troopers said Eric Logan had been riding his snowmobile in the area with friends Saturday when he got stuck.

Logan spent about 10 minutes digging the machine out and then headed to the Forks Roadhouse in Petersville after telling his friends he didn't feel well.

According to troopers, Logan collapsed as he walked into the roadhouse.

Three off-duty Anchorage police officers were at the roadhouse and performed CPR on Logan for about an hour.

When they were unable to revive him, Logan was pronounced dead.
