It sounds like the set-up to a bad joke... "so this guy walks into a bear". It really happened. There was a bear loose on the streets and a news helicopter or drone was following the bear from above as it wandered. Do you know who didn't see the bear? A guy who was texting while he was walking. He almost became the bear's dinner before he realized what was happening and ran away.

This brings up the dangers of texting while walking. While you won't always encounter a bear, you could find yourself walking into a pole, wall or window. Don't think it could happen to you?  That's probably what the people in this video thought too.
