Camping teen awakens to ‘crunching sound’ as bear bites his head

( CNN) A camp staffer at a Christian summer camp in Colorado received medical care after he was made awake early Sunday by a bear chewing on his head.

The 19 -year-old said that he thought he was dreaming as he heard a “crunching sound, ” only to wake up in “immense pain” as the black bear attempted to drag him away from the Glacier View Ranch campsite, Colorado Parks& Wildlife spokeswoman Jennifer Churchill told CNN.

The victim — who teaches wilderness survival at the camp — told CNN affiliate KMGH about the ordeal.
