Boy Defeats Wolves With Phone

Walter Eikrem, a 13 year old Norwegian boy, was walking home from school near the town of Rakkestad in southwestern Norway when he was surrounded* by wolves.
Thinking fast, he began to play the song “Overcome” by the hard rock band Creed on his mobile phone, and to yell* and wave* his arms around.
“The worst thing you can do is run away, because that just invites the wolves to chase* you down,“ Eikrem said. “But I was so afraid that I couldn‘t even run away if I‘d wanted to.“
Creed were an American band who had 3 bestselling albums before breaking up in 2004.
