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.

The surname Toll is in my maternal Tree, and as I have a lot of dna match cousins in the USA and Canada I wonder where Tage's family originated. mine was from Devon, England. My wife and I have only just lately watched Alaska State Troopers and marvelled at the dedication, and daily stresses of the officers. I was a New South Wales Policeman here in Australia for over nine years, and appreciate the problem of working alone in remote areas without backup. I was a Vietnam Veteran with 12 years Army Service, and three years Army Reserve service when I left in 1991. To Tage's family and friends I give my love, and condolences. Thank you for his Kansas Highway Patrol, and ten years service to the Alaskan community. God Bless his memory, and keep safe all you wonderful Troopers...Cheers from Down Under.
