Manitoba helicopter pilot dies in Antarctic
A helicopter pilot who lived in Manitoba has died in the Antarctic, Canadian officials have confirmed.
David Wood, 62, was "injured in an incident on a remote ice shelf near Australia's Davis research station," a release issued by the Environment Department's Australian Antarctic division said.
Bruno Meili of Fireweed Helicopters in Whitehorse said Wood spent most summers flying charters and fighting forest fires in Northern Canada.
Wood travelled on days off to be with his wife and children in Winnipeg Beach and had grown children living in Australia, Meili said. | READ MORE
