A group of teens were mauled by a brown bear and her cub in the Alaskan wilderness while at least two of them were participating in a survival skills course, CNN reported Sunday.

Those two teens participating in the wilderness skills course suffered life-threatening injuries, forcing rescuers to help them early Sunday morning.

The teens reportedly told state troopers that they had been crossing the river when the bears rushed them and attacked, injuring those in front more than the rest.
