Swedish Man Scares Off Charging Bear

What would you do if you were in the woods and a giant brown bear charged at you? You only have milliseconds to react and one wrong move could be the end of you. The last thing you want to do in a situation like that is run, that will only give the bear more courage to take you down like the prey you are. It’s hard, but you have to stand your ground, raise your arms, and scream like you’ve never screamed before. 

This Swedish man demonstrates the perfect reaction to a charging bear. He kept his cool, raised his arms to appear bigger, and gave our a great roar! Phew!

Terrifying Helmet Camera Footage Captures When Skier Saves His Friend Covered By Avalanche

Skiing is always a somewhat dangerous sport, but it can become deadly when an avalanche is involved. Three friends decided to go skiing on the Swiss Alps even after a meter of snow had just fallen and the avalanche warning was high.  

Finally, the inevitable occurred, and an avalanche covered the skiers with snow. Daniel, who had a helmet camera rolling, was luckily only pushed down by the snow. That was when he and Andrew realized their friend James was missing. 

By a stroke of luck, James had raised his hand holding his ski pole up the moment he was smothered by the snow. His friends only found him in time because they saw the tip of the ski pole poking out of the snow.

James wrote about the chilling ordeal here
