(WIDK By AnnaMarie Houlis) – We always hear about the dangers of texting while driving, but what about texting while walking?
For one California man, texting while walking almost had him attacked by a black bear, which he nearly walked into, and the whole interaction was caught on video.
According to Digital Life, the man said he was walking down the stairs and texting his boss that he’d be late for work, when he noticed a bear coming up the stairs in his direction.
Bears are common on garbage day in La Crescenta, California, and, therefore, soon after it was spotted around 3:00 AM, crews were able to tranquilize and transport it to a safer location.
As for the man, he just turned around and ran for his life—literally.
