Hello and welcome to the details of Alaska Coast Guard rescues man who fended off grizzly bear for days and now with the details

Nevin Al Sukari - Sana'a - WASHINGTON, July 23 — A man who fended off attacks from a wild grizzly bear for a week straight in the Alaskan wilderness is recovering from his injuries after he was found stranded at an encampment, the US Coast Guard said. 

An aircrew first spotted an “SOS” sign on top of a shack during a routine helicopter flight over the west Alaskan coast last Friday, according to a Coast Guard statement. It wasn’t until the aircraft flew back to inspect the message that it noticed a man waving two hands in the air. 

The gesture “is considered an international distress signal,” the statement said. 

“The aircrew landed and made contact with the individual, who requested medical care after being attacked by a bear a few days earlier,” the Coast Guard said.  

The bear attack victim suffered from a leg injury and bruising on his torso. He told authorities he was stalked by the bear, which he said returned to his camp site every night for a week. 

The Coast Guard transported the victim to the nearby town of Nome, where he was treated for his injuries.
