This is a great relief for the community. Since this morning we have been talking about it on community radio to share the good news. […] When there is a search and rescue situation, the community comes together, explains Puvirnituq search team coordinator Markusie Kalingo.
The couple set out on Sunday evening to go to the village of Akulivik from Puvirnituq. About a hundred kilometers separate the two villages, which are usually crossed in just a few hours.
The two snowmobilers, however, apparently lost their way from the trail, the tracks of which were blown away by the snow. They then tried to find him, until they ran out of fuel.
Lost, without survival equipment and without food, they managed to make an emergency shelter in the snow.

They survived with very few resources. […] It shows to what extent they are resilient and strong people, and that they know their territory, explains Jean-François Morin, deputy chief of operations of the Nunavik Police Department.

The Nunavik Police Department reminds residents of the importance of always being equipped with a geolocation device when outing in the tundra. It is also important to have the necessary equipment for shelter, warmth and food.
