'She slammed me down into the water'
"We were camping in Waiparous. It was a nice day, so we hiked down to the river.When we got down to the river, we had a picnic and we were sitting on therocks. You know, there's cars going by, very busy area close to the main road,so we didn't really think anything of attacks, or whatever.
"As we were sitting there, we were laying on the bank,about six feet from us there was a bank and we were on the rocks and my wifesaid 'oh, I think there are two wolves.' So I stood up and I saw two bear cubs.
"As soon as I noticed the bear cubs, the mother grizzlybear comes bursting through the trees. She knocks me over. I stood up, I yelledat her, she kept coming. Boom! She knocked me over. I scrambled toget up quickly, I yelled to my wife 'get into the river, get into the river!' Istarted running towards the river, as soon as I got to the river I felt like Igot hit by a truck. She slammed me down into the water and she was standing ontop of me when I was in the water and I thought for sure I'm going to die, I'mdead.
"She got off me. Istood up and I saw her charging after my wife. She knocked my wife over and mywife put up her hands to block her face and the bear grabbed a hold of herarm. At that point I started sprinting towards the bear. The bear startedrunning and dragging my wife. And then when I got maybe two or three feet fromthe bear, the bear saw me and got spooked and ran away. I picked up my wife anddragged her as fast as I could to the other side. I saw the bear and the bearcubs running into the distance.
'Help, help, help!'
"Then, at thatpoint, me and my wife were trying to figure out how to get out of there so westarted walking into the most clear area to get back to our vehicle. I wasyelling, I was making loud noises so the bear would know where we were.
"At that point weheard another guy yelling back to us. I looked back to the top of the cliff,there was a man standing there, one with a red shirt and one with adark-coloured shirt, and he was yelling back to us, so we said 'help, help,help!' I said 'be careful, there's a bear,' and he said 'yeah, I know there's abear, we saw where it went.'
"So his friendstayed on the top of the cliff. Thank God those guys showed up. His friendstayed on top of the cliff, watching where the bear was, and he came down andguided us to where their vehicle was.
"Whenwe got to the top of the cliff, I ran, got my vehicle, jumped into my vehicle,drove it back to my wife as fast as possible, put my wife in the vehicle andthen my wife and I, I just started ripping down the road to get her to thehospital.
"The ambulance showed up so we stopped. They started givingher first aid and they called the helicopter and then the helicopter took herto the hospital and I went from there.
"It was the worst experience of my life, it washorrible."
'I'm going to get killed here'
"As soon as the bear charged towards me, the first feelingI felt was I was going to die. I knew I was going to die, because I could seethat this animal was coming towards me and there was no hope of trying to stopit. It was the biggest bear I've ever seen in my life and she was really,really angry and just wanted to protect her cubs.
"I just pictured the scene from The Revenant. I was like' I'm going to get killed here, my wife's going to get killed and we're going tobe sitting here dying until somebody finds us.'
"Then when the bear slammed me down into the river, I knewat the moment, I was like 'I'm going to drown.' I thought it was going to startattacking me but it didn't."
"My wife, when she was in the hospital. She just kept telling the helicopter people and everybody, 'Go check my husband, go check myhusband.' All I can say is I am extremely lucky. The bear took me down twice and I'm able to walk away and say that I'm OK.
