2 Iqaluit hunters safe after snowmobile breaks through ice


Two Iqaluit men are lucky to be alive after their snowmobile and qamutik, a traditional Inuit sled, broke through the ice and sank early Monday morning.

Joseph Monteith and Kelly Akpaleapik, both in their 30s, were hunting on Frobisher Bay approximately 50 kilometres south of Iqaluit when the incident took place.

"We know both men went through the ice into water," Jimmy Akavak, chair of Iqaluit's search and rescue, said in Inuktitut.
