    A dozen orcas, trapped under ice and facing death on Canada's frozen Hudson Bay since Tuesday, have escaped.

    The whales gathered round a hole in the ice that provided the pod with their only source of oxygen.

    The plight of the mammals drew hundreds of locals from the nearby northern Quebec village of Inukjuak to monitor their progress.
