Tourists Rescued from Canadian Ice Floe

After nearly two days of being stranded, campers and guides were rescued by helicopters at 6 p.m. on Wednesday. The group’s 30-mile-long ice floe broke off in Baffin Island, which is the world’s fifth largest island.

The military provided food and supplies for the group of 10 tourists and 10 guides after two unsuccessful attempts to rescue the group due to bad weather.

According to NBC News, the wind and tides pressed the ice towards the coast near the entrance of the Northwest Passage.

You can bet the tourists will always remember their trip to Canada after this incident.
