Canadian police find 4 frozen bodies on US border

Canadian police have found four frozen bodies of people, including a child, on the border with the United States, authorities in the province of Manitoba said.

According to the authorities' statement: "On January 19, the police in the Canadian province of Manitoba found four frozen people, including a child, on the border with the United States. All the bodies were found about 12 meters from the American border."

The statement indicated that the police initially found three bodies at the border, belonging to a man, a woman and a child.

After some time, the body of a boy was found nearby.  

According to preliminary data, the four people died of hypothermia, as the temperature in Manitoba dropped to minus 23 degrees Celsius.

Manitoba Police Chief Jane McClatchy appealed to residents not to move around in this cold weather, and said: "I want to appeal to anyone who is thinking of crossing the border in Manitoba, heading south or north, not to do so. Don't listen to anyone who tells you they can drop you off. To your destination safely and peacefully. This is not true."

Later, the media reported that the attorney general's office had charged a Florida resident with human smuggling.
