Police service dog Kola rescues man near Yellowknife Bay

On Friday, November 13th at approximately 8:20 p.m., Yellowknife RCMP received a call for service regarding an intoxicated individual stranded outside in the cold at an unknown location. RCMP dispatched immediately and through the investigation, fresh tracks were located at the Con Mine boat launch, appearing to head out on Yellowknife Bay.

Since the ice conditions were too dangerous for anyone to venture out on the ice and didn’t allow for a search to be conducted on the ice on the Bay, the NT RCMP Police Dog Services deployed immediately in the area and along the shore. Police service dog Kola located the individual in a shed on Lakeview Road. The RCMP immediately transported the individual to Stanton Territorial Hospital for treatment due exposure to the cold.

“We are thankful we found the individual safe and sound. RCMP would like to remind people to always tell a friend or family member where you are going. Make sure you dress in layers to face the elements. Also, as the conditions remain volatile, RCMP warn anyone to stay off the ice until it is declared safe” states Staff Sergeant Yannick Hamel, Operations Manager for Yellowknife RCMP.
