The rescue squad was unable to locate the injured man after an initial 8-hour search the day before. They had a better chance of being found because John was right next to the injured man. Around noon that day, John made the call, and the search party thankfully found them around 4 p.m. that same afternoon.
It had been nearly a day since John had first discovered the man, and even then, he was in serious condition and didn’t appear to be capable of surviving another day in his current form.
So, what was his condition when the rescue crew discovered them?
