A missing teen snowmobiler built an ice cave to survive until the rescue team arrived

According to the South Columbia Search and Rescue, a 17-year-old in British Columbia, who has not been named, formed himself to be sheltered as a snow cave after splitting from his group.

At around 6:15 pm on Saturday, the 100 Mile House Royal Canadian Mounted Police (RCMP) was informed of an overdue snowmobiler.

According to an RCMP news report, Kishore’s family and friends returned to the parking lot, but he never showed up.

Some of the party stayed on the hill and began the search, while others left to alert South Caribo Search and Rescue, who approached the 100-mile RCMP. The South Cariboo SAR eventually found the teenager “in good condition”, the RCMP said in its release.

SAR wrote in a Facebook post praising Kishore, “This young man did everything right. “He broke away from his group and after several unsuccessful attempts to get out of the area, the way he bumped into it and didn’t know the area and the area, he parked his sled in a wide open area, which was nearby Went in. Created the area to spend the night and built himself an incredible ice cave. “

The post continued, “When our team members came to visit him, he was sheltered with food and water. This young man made our work a little difficult by staying in place and knowing the existence of some backward winter.”

The 100 Mile House RCMP thanked the South Caribou SAR team for bringing the search for a more positive result.

“We are very fortunate in South Caribou to have a dedicated group of well-trained volunteers to assist in times of need,” RCMP Cpl. Madonna Saunderson wrote in a statement.
