Tourist's lucky escape from bear in China
A tourist in China got more than he bargained for, while out looking for wildlife.
The man spotted a brown bear by the side of the road in Xinjiang province and started to film it on his mobile phone.
But it suddenly rushed towards the car and he managed to close the window in time. The bear then ran off.
Local officials said it was rare to see a bear so close to the road and thought it might have come down from the mountains looking for food.
