Two men died Sunday during a whaling excursion near Alaska’s northernmost city Sunday, with few details immediately available on what happened.

According to the Arctic Sounder newspaper, a whaling captain and a crew member were killed during the capsize near Utqiagvik, formerly known as Barrow. They were in a boat which was on a tow line, and towing a whale to shore in turn, when their craft flipped in rough water.
