TRAGIC: 3 People Dead After Falling Through Ice at Humboldt Lake, Sask.

Tragedy struck at Humboldt Lake in Saskatchewan on a Saturday afternoon when three individuals, including a child, lost their lives after falling through the ice.  CBC News reports.

The incident led to a response from the RCMP, who were notified around 2:20 p.m. CST after reports of multiple people falling into the frigid waters. Witnesses reported that five people had fallen through the ice.

Despite the efforts of first responders, only three individuals were recovered from the water. Tragically, a female child was pronounced dead at the scene, while an adult woman and another female child were rushed to a nearby hospital.

The Humboldt fire department and EMS responders initially struggled to locate the remaining two individuals, both adult men, who had also fallen through the ice. 

It was the RCMP underwater recovery team that eventually found their bodies late on Sunday afternoon.

Since the incident is not being treated as a criminal matter, the RCMP will not release further details about the identities of those involved. 

The coroner’s office is currently investigating the tragic deaths.
