A women survives for eight days, thank to her survival skills after her canoe capsize on Kinosaskaw Lake and her husband dies.
Enid Dice, a 62 year old women survived eight days after her canoe capsize. She was with her husband, David Dice, a 66 year old man. Unfortunately he didn’t make it. Thanks to her survival skills, she was able to light a fire and wait for rescue. A float plane operator, who was transporting fisherman to a remote lake spotted the canoe and the body of her husband on Kinosaskaw Lake, near a set of rapids known as Needle Falls, The pilot contacted RCMP officer and mobilized a search party. A few hours later, the search-and-rescue team spotted the woman. She stay in the same spot and she knew what need to be done to be found. She was brought to the hospital with no injuries.
This was an interesting article to read. I find it sad that her husband die due the canoe capsizing, but it is also was a good read because she didn’t give up or let her husband drag her to the bottom. I like the first part of this article because it talks about how they found her but the second wasn’t the great read because they talk about how unfortunate how David dice die.
I recommend this article for anyone does not have a fear of canoes or rapid.
