Texting man nearly walks into bear attack

Prepare to hear "You could get attacked by a bear!" every time someone tells you that you really shouldn't text while walking. After all, that's exactly what almost happened to a man in California on Tuesday.

California-based station KTLA 5 even captured the incident on video. The clip's brief, but if you pay attention you'll notice a very distracted man staring at his cellphone supposedly while typing a text message as he strolls into the direction of a 300-pound bear. Before walking directly into the animal however, he glances up and realizes the danger. The guy naturally does what anyone else would do and high-tails it outta there

3. Luckily, the bear was texting as well, and a potentially serious situation averted.
