    Default What happened on the Deska?

    I heard a short blurb on the news, but did not catch it all. Sounded like an accident on the Deska? If so what kind of accident? Airboats, jetboat, raft, etc? Thanks for any information.

    A man and a 9-year-old boy died in an airboat collision on the Deshka River that sent several others to the hospital Sunday night.

    Alaska State Troopers Monday identified Jon Chris Wilson, 51, and Benjamin O'Brien, 9, both of Anchorage, as the two who died at the scene when Wilson's boat and another one driven by Allen Scott Holtzheimer of Wasilla collided rounding a river bend, troopers said.
