Man survives frosty ordeal

Found under, but not on, the wagon

Express Staff Writer

A 25-year-old man was treated and released from St. Luke's Wood River Medical Center after he was found cold but alive Sunday morning sleeping under an antique wagon in south Ketchum.

Ketchum police spokeswoman Kim Rogers said the man was "severely intoxicated" and "very, very frozen." The man's name was not available.

Police, Ketchum Fire Department and St. Luke's personnel responded to a "citizen in distress" call at about 7:40 a.m. in the 300 block of South Main Street. Rogers said it was unknown how long the man had been underneath the wagon.
