Down to his last rounds of ammunition, with bruises and a leg injury, the man was rescued by a helicopter crew that just happened by.

He was sleep-deprived and nearly out of ammunition, alone in the wilderness of Alaska. Well, not really alone.

For several nights in a row, the man had fended off the tenacious advances of a grizzly bear that had attacked him a few days earlier at a mining camp some 40 miles outside Nome.

There was no way to phone for help. But then help found him.

En route to a mission on Friday, the crew of a Coast Guard helicopter saw the man waving both hands in the air, a widely recognized distress signal, the helicopter’s pilot said. On the tin roof of a shack, SOS and “help me” had been scrawled. The shack’s door had been ripped off.

The crew took the man to Nome to be treated for bruises to his torso and a leg injury that was not life-threatening, according to the Coast Guard. So ended a weeklong ordeal that could pass as a sequel to “The Revenant,” in which Leonardo DiCaprio was mauled by a computer-generated grizzly bear

I bet those chopper blades were a sweet sound! That bear needs to be out of the gene pool

I used to live in Nome. Story I keep hearing here in AK. is he didn't have a firearm. Nearly out of ammo? So he missed the bear one or more times?
Don't forget folks..........it still doesn't get dark up here at night!

There has been a time or two when I wish i had 22 long hollow points instead of regular 22 shorts, lol. If you really want to be sensitive you probably shouldn't say attack but use the word incident instead !
