A man was harassed by a bear for a week before being rescued in Alaska | US news

A bear attack victim has been rescued after a helicopter crew spotted his pleas for help from the air.

During a trip from Kotzebue to Nome, Alaska earlier this week, a US Coast Guard crew member approached Kodiak from a remote mining camp.

They managed to see a distress sign on top of a hut, and when they passed over the scene again, a man standing nearby was waving both hands in the air, signaling his need for help.

He had been attacked by a bear a few days earlier, which caused him to injure his leg and bruise his torso.

The helicopter crew took him for treatment at Nome, a small port near the Bering Strait.

He said the bear had come to his camp and pestered him every night for the previous week.
