    4-day trek to Canada ends in frostbite

    WINNIPEG – An American man faces a number of charges after he was found freezing on the Emerson Golf Course, trying to sneak into Canada.

    The man was found by police on the golf course on Wednesday. Police say he had taken off his gloves, opened his jacket, and was babbling incoherently.

    The 41-year-old man was rushed to Morris Hospital, where he is undergoing treatment for hypothermia and severe frostbite. Police say he may lose some fingers.

    In their investigation, RCMP say they found the man had set out Saturday from Pembina, North Dakota – about four kilometres south of the border – with plans to walk to Canada. He was found some 100 hours later after travelling a total of about seven kilometres.

    Temperatures during the four days ranged from a high of around –10 C on Wednesday to a low of almost –30 C on Saturday night.

    The man, who is from Los Angeles, was trying to sneak across the border because he had been previously denied legal entry to Canada. After arriving here, he planned to travel to Quebec to be with a woman he had met on the internet.

    The man has been charged with illegal entry and possession of a prohibited weapon.

    I'm assuming that would be possession of an abbynormal brain.
