Funeral services for two Quebec men who died in a helicopter crash were held today in a Quebec City church.
Daniel Dubé and Marc Thibault were on board a helicopter travelling with the Amundsen, a coast guard icebreaker, when it crashed into the Arctic Ocean on the evening of Sept. 9.
The crash happened in the McClure Strait, about 600 kilometres west of Resolute, Nunavut.
Thibault, 48, the commanding officer of the CCGS Amundsen, was originally from L'Islet in Chaudière-Appalaches, Que. and lived in l’Ancienne-Lorette.
Dubé, the 56-year-old, Abitibi-born helicopter pilot was married with four children and lived in Boischâtel, Que.
The men, along with University of Manitoba scientist Klaus Hochheim, died from hypothermia after the helicopter plunged them into the Arctic Ocean.
Hoccheim's funeral was held in Winnipeg, Manitoba last Friday.
As per Thibault and Dubé’s families’ wishes, members of the media were not allowed inside the church.
