RCMP officers came to the rescue of a child who was stuck approximately 3.5 metres below the surface of the snow during a daycare outing near Cambridge Bay earlier this week.
The child was taken to the health centre and, although cold, was unhurt.
The outing took place on the West Arm, about seven kilometres outside of Cambridge Bay.
The RCMP remind everyone of nature’s unpredictability and to be vigilant when playing outside. It’s a good practice to bring a friend and to always have a way to call for help.
