A story that seems to come out of Hollywood and a film by the stars of American cinema. In wild Alaska, a man was rescued by the United States Coast Guard after battling a grizzly bear for a week. The story, told by The Independent, did not end in tragedy thanks to the extreme willpower of the 50-year-old (no name was given), who was diagnosed with leg and torso injuries. The huge wild animal was hunting for prey and took it out on the human being in the remote territory, managing only to wound the enemy and not to give him the coup de grace.
The man, who had a gun with a couple of shots left, took refuge in a makeshift hut and tried to send an alarm message to the outside world, writing an SOS sign and a word “help me” on the metal sheets of a shack. , several kilometers away from the presence of other human beings. Lieutenant Commander Jared Carbajal noticed the signs and saw a man waving, managing to bring him to safety thanks to his helicopter. “He said that the bear kept coming back every night and that he hadn’t slept for a few days,” the testimony of the soldier.
The real luck, in a story that has traits similar to that of The Revenant, a film that brought the coveted Oscar winner to Leonardo Di Caprio, is that the aircraft, which departed from Kodiak, was headed for another area of Alaska. , but was forced to change course due to bad weather. The wounded man was taken to Nome, the famous city of the gold rush: he will have to thank the blindfolded goddess, without the disturbance he would not have been able to save himself.
