A good ending to a news story I have been following the last few days...

A family of seven that spent six days lost in the Canadian Arctic survived by huddling inside a tent set up inside a makeshift igloo.
The family -- with five children under 12 -- was found safe Thursday, with the parents dragging a sled carrying their children. None of the family members were injured in the ordeal.

They had been on a 250-kilometre trek, by snowmobile and sled, from Repulse Bay to Hall Beach, Nunavut when they took a wrong turn and got lost.
