Video: Grizzly attack can’t stop her!

CARMICHAEL, California (KCRA) – Jessica Gamboa, 25, is grateful to be running and alive after surviving a grizzly bear attack three months ago in Alaska.

The wife of an Army soldier and mother of a 4-year-old, Gamboa was running on a sprawling military base in Anchorage when she encountered two bear cubs.

She immediately stopped and looked around for the mother bear.

“I looked over to my left, and soon as I did, there comes mama,” Gamboa said. “And that was pretty much it. She came toward me and knocked me down.” provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
