The heartbreaking incident which I am talking about, took place when mother decided to cross lake Vygozero along with her cubs. The purpose of crossing this lake was either migration or search for food. before thinking anything, you should know the temperature of this Lake can sink to -20 degrees. You can imagine, how cold it must be. The cubs were too small to cross the lake and it was almost frozen. This is the place and the condition where cubs almost drowned in the lake.
