Race against the tide, risking death under huge blocks of ice

The people of Kangiqsujuaq in Canada are venturing under the sea ice during the extreme low tides of the spring equinox to gather mussels.

It's a race against time. They only have less than half an hour to search these temporary caverns before the tide rushes back in. A look-out keeps watch for the returning tide, but warning shouts can't be too loud in case the echoes bring down the ice. This is really an amazing story. Credit to BBC.
