A few days ago a story was circulating the internet about a man who was attacked by a bear, was held captive, and survived in case you missed it here’s the story:
“This is scary, ugly, and honestly hard to look at. But A Russian man was found buried in the woods, basically left there to be eaten later by a bear. Somehow he survived. Warning The Pictures are absolutely shocking.
A Russian man looking like a living corpse has been rescued from a bear den after he claims the animal broke his back and left him there for a month.
The man, who identified himself only as Alexander, was discovered by hunting dogs in Russia’s remote Tuva region, close to the border with Mongolia, local media says.
Initially the hunters thought the body had been mummified by the dry air but were stunned to discover that the man was still alive.
Shecking video shows how Alexander’s face and body were encrusted with dried blood and dirt, his was skin a deathly white colour, and his dull eyes were barely able to open.
According to the report the man is named Alexander and was preserved as food for later by the bear. And he told doctors he drank his own urine for survival in the bear den. Doctors say it’s a miracle that the man survived.
Well here’s the update, this never happened:
The search for the identity of an emaciated man who it was believed had miraculously survived in a bear’s den in Russia for a month took a fresh twist today.
It has now been claimed that the victim was actually in hospital in Kazakhstan and had never been attacked.
The bearded ‘living mummy’ who purportedly survived a horrific ordeal after being ambushed by the bear, was first reported in the Moscow media before making international headlines.
A graphic video and pictures showed the appalling condition of the ‘survivor’, who was said to have suffered a broken spine in the attack by the bear who stashed him to eat later.
