Yesterday evening (March 31, 2016) we received a call that a man had been mauled by a large asian black bear in the jungles behind our base. We could not make it up into where the patient was as that required a 4-wheel drive vehicle, so we set up two ambulances as close as we could get and waited for over an hour before getting any word. The man had been up in the jungle by himself, and came across a bear as large as himself, which felt threatened and charged him, leaving a broken left arm, broken right hand, broken right foot, cuts on the stomach, and a very torn up face and head. He was able to play dead till the bear lost interest in him, and then crawled into a bamboo thicket for protection. Amazingly enough, he had phone service and enough composure to call for help, and that’s when a friend of his took off up the mountain in an old 4-wheel drive truck.

While we were waiting, we started laying our plan with our volunteers, and organizing everyone into groups to do specific jobs when the patient would arrive. However, after over an hour, we received a call from a friend on the Myanmar side that the patient was coming down from the mountain by a different route, so we immediately packed up and raced up to the border clinic in Punamron, and arrived exactly at the same time the patient did. We began first aid immediately, splinting and bandaging, and the nurse came out of the clinic and started an IV for the patient as well. We then loaded the patient up and took him down the mountain and to a transfer with a more advanced rig, which took the patient on to Dan Makham Tia hospital.
