Profile in courage: The Canadian man who saved a woman from the jaws of a polar bear
William Ayotte risked his life to rescue a woman who was being attacked by a polar bear in Churchill, Man. Grabbing a shovel he hit the bear, distracting it long enough to allow her to escape. The bear then turned on him, attacking him until a neighbour finally scared it away by driving toward it with a truck and blaring his horn on Nov. 1, 2013.
