Another hiker had to be rescued from the Mantario Trail on Monday — the second rescue mission in the area in recent days.
RCMP say the Winnipeg man was in a group of three when he began experiencing abdominal pain at around 9:30 a.m.
A float plane from Lac du Bonnet was dispatched near Moosehead Lake in the Whiteshell Provincial Park.
The man was rescued and transferred to hospital by ambulance.
RCMP say when planning a hike always have a method for contacting others if an emergency arises. Bring a cell phone and have provisions to make a fire.
