Ogden doctor charged with faking hypothermia to get airlifted off mountain

An Ogden doctor was charged this week with faking hypothermia to be airlifted off the highest mountain peak in North America.

The U.S. District Court for the District of Alaska charged Dr. Jason Lance on Tuesday with three crimes connected to incidents that occurred in May as he attempted to summit Denali.

Lance is listed as a radiologist with the Ogden Clinic.

Court documents claim Lance, 47, used a satellite device on May 24 to contact rescue officials to get evacuated off the mountain after abandoning his attempt to summit.
