Bear attack on The World Tonight


A 12 year old Swedish boy, Ollie Frisk, made an impression on The World Tonight last night. While he was skiing in Sweden, he accidentally disturbed a hibernating bear. It attacked him, biting his legs and clawing his back. Not only did Ollie manage to escape, but he was also able to tell presenter Ritula Shah what happened in near-perfect English. I wish I could have described a bear attack so vividly in a second language at the age of 12.

The interview is available on the BBC iPlayer indefinitely (starts 41 minutes in).
