Rick OliverFour years ago, Rick Oliver, 51, was struck by lightning. Ever since, he has had trouble sleeping. As a result, he regularly works on his Chevy Malibu in the middle of the night.

It was during one of these late-night automotive work sessions that he was victim of another improbable experience: being mauled by a bear.

"I heard this strange huffing and the next thing I know, I had been run over and stepped on by a bear," he said.

The attack left Rick with a deep, blood-spurting wrist wound. Read more about how he survived the attack at AOL Weird News.
