Canadian Man Sacrifices His Life To Protect His Children Against An Attacking Polar Bear

By Jonna Ivin-Patton

Aaron Gibbons, 31, from  Arviat, Nunavut  was visiting a popular hunting and fishing spot gathering eggs with his children when he spotted a polar bear that appeared to be stalking his family. Gibbons put himself in between the bear and his children, while telling them to get back into the boat. 

By doing so, the children were able to get to safety, but sadly, Gibbons was killed by the bear. Gibbons' cousin, Eric Anoee, will remember him as a hero, saying:

Definitely Aaron died a hero, he protected his children. It's the right word to say right now.
