The float plane transported paramedics to the location.
A 33-year-old La Ronge man was then airlifted to hospital for treatment of non-life-threatening injuries.
Police have not disclosed the nature of the injuries.

They say to always bring a fully charged cell or satellite phone in case of an emergency and to let family or friends know of travel plans.
