A bear assault sufferer has been rescued after a helicopter crew noticed his pleas for assist from the air.
Throughout a flight from Kotzebue to Nome in Alaska earlier this week, the US Coast Guard crew from Kodiak approached a distant mining camp.
They may see an SOS signal on high of a shack and, once they handed over the scene once more, a person was standing close by waving each fingers within the air, indicating his want for assist.
He had been attacked by a bear just a few days earlier, leaving him with a leg damage and bruising on his torso.
The helicopter crew members took him to get remedy in Nome, a small port close to the Bering Strait.
He mentioned the bear had come to his camp and harassed him each night time in the course of the earlier week.
