CHURCHILL – A little girl is dead after the canoe she was in with her family capsized.
Around supper time last night, RCMP were called to a report of a tipped canoe on the Churchill River.
Two local tour operators had also been alerted to the scene.
They were able to pull from the river a man, a five-year-old girl and a four-year-old boy – all from Winnipeg.
The dad and his two children were taken to hospital where the girl died of her injuries.
The other two are still being treated, but their conditions aren’t known.
Mounties say the incident does not appear to be suspicious and they were all wearing life jackets.
The investigation is ongoing.
