When two hunters spotted a bear Saturday on a ridge above them south of Anchorage, they opened fire, Alaska State Troopers say.

The wounded bear tumbled down the ridge, knocking loose some rocks, and landed on William McCormick, 28, troopers reported in a statement

A loose rock also struck McCormick, who suffered life-threatening injuries, troopers wrote.

His hunting partner, Zachary Tennyson, 19, who was unhurt, called for help about noon and rescuers airlifted McCormick to a hospital, troopers reported.
