A Colorado man said he is lucky to be alive after being attacked by a bear inside an Aspen home.

Dave Chernosky, 54, who is recovering from severe cuts to his face, said he woke up around 1:30 a.m. on Friday after hearing sounds coming from the kitchen.

“I was asleep and heard something in the kitchen. And I just kind of laid there thinking, ‘Okay, something’s wrong,'” Chernosky told “Good Morning America.” “So I went to the kitchen, saw [the bear] there. He was already in the fridge and cupboards and stuff like that.”

Chernosky, a father of two, said the family was staying at a friend’s house when he confronted the massive black bear.

“My kids were in the basement, so I wanted to make sure he stayed upstairs,” said Chernosky, who described the bear as dark brown and estimated it was close to 450 pounds.
