RCMP: 3 Deceased After Falling Through Humboldt Lake Ice

On November 4, 2023, at approximately 2:20 p.m., Humboldt and Lanigan RCMP attended a residence on Humboldt (Stoney) Lake (just south of Humboldt, Sask.) to assist Humboldt Fire Department and local EMS who were responding to a report that numerous people had fallen through the ice, into the lake.

Witnesses reported there were five individuals in the water. Officers and emergency personnel on scene observed three people in the open water where the ice was breached. The three were eventually recovered by firefighters. One adult female and one female child were taken to nearby hospital for assessment and one female child was pronounced deceased at the scene.

The two other individuals, both adult males, did not resurface.

As a result, Saskatchewan RCMP Underwater Recovery Team (URT) attended to conduct searches of the water. On November 5 shortly after 5 p.m., URT members recovered both men deceased.

The Saskatchewan Coroners Service has taken carriage of the investigation.

RCMP shared that as this is considered a sudden death investigation and there is no element of criminality, they will not be releasing any further details including the names of the deceased or anyone involved.
