Girl under bear attack calls mum before dyingAugust 17th, 2011 - 7:54 pm ICT by IANS
London, Aug 17 (IANS) A mother in Russia had a shock of her life when her teenaged daughter frantically called her up for help while being attacked by a group of bears.
Olga Moskalyova, 19, had just watched her stepfather being attacked in long grass and reeds by a river and thus fled for 70 yards before the mother bear grabbed her leg, the Daily Express reported.
As the bear chased and attacked her, Olga managed to call mother Tatiana during the prolonged attack.
Tatiana helplessly listened to her daughter who was under attack by a brown bear and its three cubs.
Olga called her mother thrice to gave an horrific hour-long account of the attack, as the wild animals finally killed her.
She screamed: “Mum, the bear is eating me! Mum, it’s such agony. Mum, help!”
Tatiana said that at first she thought Olga, who was a trainee psychologist, was joking. “But then I heard the real horror and pain in Olga’s voice, and the sounds of a bear growling and chewing.”
She added: “I could have died then and there from shock.”
Tatiana also rang up her husband for help.
Little did Tatiana know that the bear had already killed her husband and Olga’s stepfather Igor Tsyganenkov by overpowering him, breaking his neck and smashing his skull.
