A man died after jumping from a boat near Ekuk, a community near Dillingham.
Lloyd O'Connor called Alaska State Troopers at 11 p.m. Friday to report that Galacia Hiratsuka, 43, jumped out of his boat and did not resurface after attempting to swim to shore.
"His boat motor was not working so he pulled up his anchor in hopes of drifting to shore," said AST spokesperson Megan Peters. "When he went away from the shore instead he decided to try to swim."
A local search was conducted by individuals from the fish camp near where the incident occurred, but Hiratsuka was not found due to darkness and outgoing tide, troopers wrote in a dispatch.
"Alcohol was a factor," troopers wrote. "Hiratsuka was not wearing a PFD."
His body was recovered near the Ekuk dock the following morning and then transported to the Dillingham hospital.
Foul play is not suspected.
