Cambridge Bay, Nunavut – On May 7, 2019, at about 2:50 p.m., while on a day care outing in Cambridge Bay, a child was observed missing. An off duty RCMP officer who was along for the outing jumped into action, calling for additional resources to be dispatched. The child was found several minutes later in a deep crevice in the snow, believed to be 10 to 15 feet deep and not within reach from the surface. Three RCMP officers soon attended the scene to assist. After an attempt to lower one of the officers into the crevice failed, everyone took part in digging around the crevice to get closer to the child. After several attempts and more digging, two officers entered the crevice head first and were able to extract the child at 3:20 p.m. The child was taken to the Health Centre by the Cambridge Bay Fire Department where he was examined and found to be cold but unhurt.
The day care outing took place on the West Arm, about seven kilometers outside Cambridge Bay. An ice road provides access to several cabins and a popular sledding hill, which the children were playing on.
The RCMP would like to use this happy ending to remind everyone of the unpredictability of nature and to be very careful and vigilant when playing outside. It’s a good practice to bring a friend and to always have a way to call for help.
