POINT HOPE, Alaska — It was a long way from open water but the Coast Guard launched a helicopter from a cutter in the Bering Sea to rescue an Alaska woman injured on an ATV some 50 miles inland.

Coast Guard Petty Officer Jonathan Klingenberg said the chopper picked up the 37-year-old woman on Friday and flew her to Point Hope on the northwest Alaska coast for advanced medical care. She suffered a back injury.
