Teenager trapped on ice with polar bears

A Canadian teenager was rescued after being trapped on a floating piece of ice, along with three polar bears.

The 17-year-old was on a hunting trip with his uncle when he became stuck on the floating ice. In self-defence, he had to shoot one of the bears.

The snowmobile they were riding on broke down 11 miles from Coral Harbour, a tiny community on Nunavut’s Southampton Island in the northern part of Hudson Bay in Canada’s Arctic.

As they walked toward the community to get help, they became separated and then a large chunk of ice broke off meaning the teen was set adrift along with the not-so-friendly bears.

The teenager was eventually rescued by a military search and rescue aircraft; he had to be taken to hospital as he was found suffering with hypothermia.
