Polar bear killed after attacking cruise line employee on Arctic archipelago

ABC7.com is reporting a very sad story involving a cruise ship employee.

“A cruise line employee was injured in a polar bear attack Saturday on an Arctic archipelago between mainland Norway and the North Pole, according to local authorities.

The man was working as a polar bear guide aboard the MS Bremen. The ship had landed on the northernmost island of the Svalbard archipelago, an area known for its remote terrain, glaciers, reindeer and polar bears.

“The man was attacked by a polar bear and injured on his head,” Hapag Lloyd Cruises, who operates the ship, said in a statement to The Associated Press. “He was flown out, was responsive, and is currently undergoing medical treatment.””
