Tage Brandel Toll

Trooper Tage Toll was killed in a helicopter crash during a search and rescue mission near Talkeetna, Alaska.

Trooper Toll had been picked up by the Alaska State Trooper's Helo-1 at approximately 7:35 pm to assist in searching for a missing snowmachiner near Larson Lake. They located the subject just before 10:00 pm and were able to bring him aboard the helicopter.

The helicopter was en route to Sunshine Tesoro to meet with medics when troopers lost radio contact with it at approximately 11:00 pm. The wreckage was located the following morning after a massive search. Trooper Toll, civilian pilot Mel Nading, and the snowmachiner were all killed in the crash.

Trooper Toll had served with the Alaska State Troopers for 10 years and had previously served with the Kansas Highway Patrol.

Five years ago today two of my friends went out to rescue a stranded citizen. I still remember my last words to Tage as he walked out the squad room door to get on the Helo with Mel. That day is as clear to me now as if it were yesterday. RIP my brothers you are missed.
