Balls of steel: Man saves 170kg bear from drowningMikey 3 comments
Seriously, you read the title correctly. The bear was spotted and near Apalachicola (USA) on the weekend. Fearing the safety of nearby residents, the bear was sedated with a tranquilliser dart as it was in the water.
As it collapsed it was apparent the bear would drown, so biologist Adam Warwick jumped in to rescue the bear and drag it to shore.
