ANCHORAGE, Alaska (AP) - Four teens among wilderness survival students who survived a grizzly attack in Alaska have left the state to return to their hometowns.
Bruce Palmer, a spokesman for Wyoming-based National Outdoor Leadership School, says the students who departed are 16-year-old Sam Boas of Westport, Conn., 17-year-old Sam Melman of Huntington, N.Y., 16-year-old Shane Garlock of Pittsford, N.Y., and 18-year-old Victor Martin of Richmond, Calif.
Martin was bitten above his ankle in the bear attack Saturday night in the Talkeetna Mountains. He is the only one of four injured teens to leave Alaska.
Seventeen-year-old Joshua Berg of New City, N.Y., remains in fair condition at an Anchorage hospital, where 17-year-old Sam Gottsegen of Denver is in good condition.
The fourth injured student, 16-year-old Noah Allaire of Albuquerque, N.M., also remains in Alaska.
