Pimicikamak Cree Nation elders flown to hospital after tent collapses during ceremony

What was supposed to be a happy community event took a terrible turn Tuesday in Pimicikamak Cree Nation, Man., after a big tent buckled under intense winds, trapping and injuring several elders.

"I cried for the elders," said Shirley Robinson, vice-chief of Pimicikamak, also known as Cross Lake. "The way I found them, the way we saw them, the way everyone was running around, you know, it was scary."
