ANCHORAGE - The Coast Guard is investigating the death of a man on board a Seattle-based fishing boat.
The 39-year-old man, whose name has not been released, was repairing a suspected gas leak Thursday night on the Zenith as the vessel was about 72 miles southeast of False Pass in the Aleutian Islands.
Other crew members found the man unconscious. Attempts to resuscitate him failed.
The Zenith is owned by Jubilee Fisheries Incorporated.
The Coast Guard said its investigators planned to meet the vessel at Sand Point.
