Florida woman videos close encounter with black bear

LAKE MARY, Fla. -- A Florida woman recently filmed her close encounter with a giant black bear - and lived to tell the tale.

Teliece Sander was playing games on her phone when she looked up and noticed the bear, according to WESH.

“He was that close, I felt his breath, he was this, and he was a foot away from me when it came from my face to his face," she said.

She then took a picture of the bear and sent a "help me" text to her son.

When her son Colton walked up behind the bear, it slowly walked away.
