A 31-year-old dad “died a hero” protecting his children from a polar attack in Canada's northernmost territory of Nunavut. Aaron Gibbons was on Sentry Island, a popular fishing and hunting spot, when a bear charged towards him and his children. Gibbons’ uncle said the dad told his daughters to run while he put himself between them and the charging animal. The girls were unharmed but their dad later died from his injuries. “He was enjoying his day with his children,” Gordy Kidlapik told Canadian media. “They were surprised by a bear that had started to stalk or charge towards one of his children.” One of the girls, who are described as elementary school age, called for help through the boat's radio. Polar bear attacks are rare—authorities said the last death from one in Nunavut was in 2000.
