Heroic Brothers Charge Bear To Save Sister

Heroic Brothers Charge Bear To Save Sister

A Utah family celebrating Father's Day with a camping trip to Wyoming survived an encounter with a bear thanks to the quick thinking of their 11-year-old son. WBBH News for Fort Myers, Cape Coral WBBH News for Fort Myers, Cape Coral

It was supposed to be a family fun day of camping but it quickly turned into a nightmare for the Kelly family.

The family made a Father's Day breakfast and thought they'd cleaned up properly, but a little bit of bacon grease left on the grill attracted the bear to the campground.

"Two staffers came running, yelling that there was a bear," said Kamila Kelly.

Baden Kelly, 11, saw what was happening and started yelling and waving and got the bear to stop long enough for the family to get into a cabin.

His little sister, Moriah, didn't move.

"I said, 'Run, Moriah,' and she didn't run, so I got to her and I started running with her, and that's when the bear started running after us," Baden said. "By the time it got to about 10 feet behind us, my brother came running really fast out of his cabin and shouted very loudly."
The heroic actions of the two brothers helped everyone get to safety.
"The moment I saw Moriah being brought up by the staff, it was just such a relief, and she jumped into my arms and said, 'Baden and Logan saved my life,'" Kamila Kelly said.
