Woman dies after her snowmobile gets stuck
GOULAIS TOWNSHIP, Ont. — Provincial police say a woman has died after her snowmobile became stuck about 15 kilometres from home. They say 49-year-old Kelly Kalesa of Goulais River, Ont., about 25 kilometres north of Sault Ste. Marie, left her home last Tuesday wearing light clothing as the temperature at the time was approximately 2C.
