Creed Song Saves Norwegian Boy From Wolves
Sometimes, you never know the power of loud rock until you need it the most. A 13 year-old Norwegian boy found that out in the most surreal of circumstances earlier this week. Spiegel International reports Walter Eikrem was listening to music on his mobile phone as he made his way home from school in the southern Norwegian town of Rakkestad on Monday. Four wolves appeared on the path Eikram usually takes from the bus stop to his home. "I was afraid they would attack me," Walter told the Norwegian tabloid VG. But he didn't let his fear show. Remembering his parents' advice, Walter pulled the earphones out of his mobile phone, turned the volume all the way up and blasted heavy metal music over its miniature speakers. At the same time, he yelled as loud as he could while flailing his arms about wildly to scare off the pack of wild animals. "The worst thing you can do is run away because doing so just invites the wolves to chase you down," Walter told TV2. "But I was so afraid that I couldn't even run away if I'd wanted to." The plan worked. Eikrem said he was able to drive away the wolves by playing the song "Overcome" by Creed. "They didn't really get scared," Walter said. "They just turned around and simply trotted away." Check out the full story at Spiegel International here. Thanks for the report to
