Workers safe after emergency landing in Norman Wells

Abondoned oil drums and American Military ehicles along the Canol Trail.

“Thank god my son wasn’t working on the helicopter today,” is all Tulita Mayor Rocky Norwegian could say on Thursday, after a chopper crew made an emergency landing in Norman Wells, NWT.

The crew on the helicopter are part of the team doing remediation work on the historic Canol Trail, across the Mackenzie River from the town and oil fields of Norman Wells.

“I can’t say much, just that there was an emergency landing, and the crew are at the health centre,” Norwegian told CKLB.

One person said he had a sore back.

The Canol Trail is a busy spot these days, with the annual Youth Leadership Hike commencing yesterday.

Crews are currently doing cleaning up work between Mile 108 and Mile 81.
