Bear al­most lost his head

Midweek Sport - - NEWS -

TELLY ad­ven­turer Bear Grylls has told how he was nearly DE­CAP­I­TATED dur­ing a film­ing mishap.

The dare­devil star of Chan­nel 4’s has al­most carked it count­less times.

But the for­mer Spe­cial Forces sol­dier, 37, says be­ing nearly taken out by a TV cam­era was his clos­est call yet.

He said: “Re­cently a heavy cam­era came plung­ing down which very nearly de­cap­i­tated me.

“It’s odd, but it’s only when I see old friends that I’m struck by the pre­cious­ness of life and how one false move and I might not be here talk­ing to you.”

Bear is about to em­bark on a live UK lec­ture tour, start­ing in Bournemouth on March 22.
