Iqaluit hunter walked 3 hours barefoot on ice until help arrived

 


Iqaluit's Joseph Monteith and Kelly Akpaleapik had everything you need for a hunting excursion including a satellite phone and a SPOT device, but the unpredictable ice conditions on Frobisher Bay got the better of them when their snowmobile and qamutik, a traditional Inuit sled, broke through the ice and sank.

Both men fell into the freezing water along with their equipment. That's when Akpaleapik lost his boots.
