When coronavirus forced millions across the world to practice social distancing with its high mortality rates, it was easy to forget that the virus wasn't the only deadly thing around.

A Canadian woman reportedly died on her way home from her friend and next-door neighbor's place. According to sources, this elderly woman was a resident of Dawson's Creek, who died from exposure to extreme cold.

On the morning of February 7th, 2021, officials from Dawson Creek's RCMP were notified about the death of a 68-year-old woman, who was found outside her home by the same friend she visited the night before.

It was reported that the deceased left her friend's home at 1:00 Am after consuming alcohol but unfortunately the Canadian woman could not make it back inside her own house.

Sources stated that the tragic evening's temperature was about -43.6 degrees Fahrenheit. This extremely cold weather is detrimental to one's health, which is why the Canadian government issues warnings whenever the temperature drops.

The preliminary evidence also suggested the woman collapsed due to the extreme weather.

The adverse effects of extreme cold weather include health problems such as frostbite and hypothermia. The tragic death of this 68-year-old woman is an eye-opening reminder to others about the severity of cold weather.

The alleged niece of the deceased confessed to sources that there was an ongoing investigation on a foul play but this news contradicted the statement given by the media spokesperson for Dawson Creek's RCMP.

The spokesperson reportedly admitted that they couldn't comment on the investigation, however, pointed out the incident wasn't being treated as suspicious. The preliminary evidence also suggested the woman collapsed due to the extreme weather.

This Canadian woman's death wasn't the only shocking event to occur this February as three people were rescued by the U.S. Coast Guard after being stranded on an uninhabited island for 33 days.
