Sean Costain rescued Daniel B. Lloyd from an attacking bear, Bella Coola, British Columbia, October 12, 1985. Lloyd, 21, working in a remote area, was returning to camp with a co-worker when he was attacked by a large grizzly bear, which knocked him to the ground and bit him. The co-worker, Costain, 23, compassman, hid behind a tree but, on seeing the attack, stepped toward the bear, shouting and waving his arms to distract the bear. The bear then charged Costain and attacked him, biting him on the hand. Abruptly, the bear broke off its attack and left the scene. Costain and Lloyd walked to their camp and were flown to the hospital. Lloyd was treated for wounds to his head and neck, and Costain for wounds to his hand and leg, from which he recovered.
