A 9-year-old Alaska boy fell into a deep glacier crevasse, and state troopers say he probably did not survive.

The Fairbanks Daily News-Miner reported that Sjohn Brown of Fairbanks fell about 200 feet while riding a snowmobile Saturday at the Arctic Man Classic, a race involving snowmobiles and skiers or snowboarders in the Hoodoo Mountains.

Alaska state troopers said he apparently fell into a mulan, which forms when water flowing on glaciers erodes ice.
