A video shows Alexander opening his blue eyes and confirming his first name.
It is as yet unclear if he was a hunter, too, and how his encounter with the bear happened.
He managed to explain that he was attacked and dragged inside the den when he broke his spine.
The attack happened approximately a month ago, Alexander said.
‘The bear preserved me as food for later’, he explained.
A video filmed inside the local hospital shows that the man turned into a ‘speaking mummy’ with his tissues rotting after laying motionless for so long.
Local medics say they cannot explain how the man survived such injuries.
