Man spotted on Frame Lake island

A man apparently walked across thin ice to get to an island on Frame Lake, not far from Old Airport Road on Tuesday.

Paramedics used binoculars from shore and told Yellowknifer they could see a man on the island. Using a loudspeaker, they called to him and asked him to make his way to shore. While Yellowknifer was with the paramedics, no one was spotted leaving the island. City spokesperson Nalini Naidoo did not provide information yesterday as to whether they thought the man was still there and if any efforts would be made to rescue him.
