often brings stories about the Canadian Coast Guard helping boaters in Nunavut.

This time, APTN has obtained video shot Sunday depicting the actual moment.

Nine boaters from Cape Dorset, Nunavut, found themselves trapped in sea ice and contacted search and rescue for assistance.

Soon after the video was shot, supplies were dropped off to the stranded people.

They were reached by the Coast Guard ship Pierre Radisson on Monday.

The boaters are going to wait out bad weather and return home with their own boats.
