"There is an investigation going on (into the cause of the accident)," he added. Colonel Steve Noonan, in charge of Canadian forces in Afghanistan said by telephone, the group were "at the beginning of their patrol" after dusk. The soldiers, three seriously injured and one described as a "walking wounded", were taken to Kandahar aboard a US military helicopter for emergency medical care. None of the four survivors suffered life-threatening injuries, Dumais said.
