The Anchorage Health Department charged Securitas to open an investigation into what happened.

ANCHORAGE, Alaska - The Anchorage Health Department is conducting an investigation into an incident that occurred Dec. 28 when an employee of Anchorage’s sleep-off center allegedly tipped a man from a wheelchair into the snow and left him there.“He had a guy in a wheelchair and he was just wheeling him up,” said McWain. “I didn’t think nothing of it until I turned around and he was dumping him out of the wheelchair. And so that’s when I pulled out my phone.

McWain called the Anchorage Police Department’s non-emergency line before he left the man, which APD confirmed. An ADP spokesperson says an officer responded but found no indication a crime had been committed and the safety patrol took the man back into protective custody. By the time McWain returned to the scene, the man was gone.

In a statement, Health Department Spokesperson Tyler Sachtleben wrote that upon learning of the incident, the department charged Securitas to open an investigation into what happened.
