Alaskan Bush People star, Bear Brown, hurt himself recently. The injury was bad enough for him to go to the hospital to get checked out.


He shared an Instagram post where he was seen wearing a hospital bracelet. The star didn’t add a caption to the picture leaving fans to wonder what had happened to him.

Bear Brown generally calls himself the "King of Extreme" because he likes performing stunts. He’s often seen on his family’s reality show climbing up trees.

However, his recent stunt landed him in hospital. An insider shared on Wednesday that Brown had a terrible incident with a tree.


An insider revealed that Brown was running outside and turned his head into a small tree branch. He was said to have sustained a small eye injury.

The star traveled to a hospital in Spokane, Washington for treatment. This past Monday he was released and given an eye patch.

Luckily for the star, the source shared that he would be fine. The daredevil isn’t the only one in his family who’s found himself needing medical attention.


His brother, Noah Brown, was rushed to the hospital in Coeur D’Alene, Idaho in April this year. He had to have an emergency gallbladder surgery.

A source revealed at the time that Noah was in the parking lot at Beyers Market in Tonasket, Washington, on Tuesday showing off his scar. During the surgery he had his gall bladder removed.

The two brothers also had to deal with their mother, Ami Brown, being hospitalized last year after being with advanced lung cancer. Doctors gave her a 3 percent chance of survival last spring.

Later in 2017, she announced that she had been declared cancer-free. This was after she faced numerous treatments that had left her weighing just 77 lbs.

At the beginning of this year, she opened up to People about surviving the disease soon after announcing her recovery.
