Generally a Black Bear will not attack a human. They will eat anything but not usually people. This guy did a great job. He surprised that bear as much as the bear surprised him. Bears are curious animals. I grew up in an area of Canada with many of them and they would show up fairly regularly. Our dog or the neighbors dog would scare them up a tree and they would whimper just like this one when they are scared. Attack happens when you are around their cubs, or they are acclimatized to people and people having food. And even then they rarely will eat people. Brown bear or polar bear totally different story. They will eat people without a problem. Especially Polar bears. Big cute cuddly polar bear that will saunter up to you and bat your head off your body and chow down.

The fact he reacted quickly and correctly says preparedness. Just like concept of military maneuvers, familiarity (or awareness, at least) leads to cool-headed reactions.
I'm sure a thought crossed someones mind; why isn't he armed?
He is; both 100% busy hanging on.
...we'll learn more by wandering than searching...
