    Funny the Oleans time said they found him alive but he went into cardiac arrest while taking him out of the woods.

    When I say “funny”, I’m referring to KDKA reporting. The event that happened is not funny at all. My thoughts and prayers go out to this man’s family.

    I live near where this man was found. I spoke to the state troopers after they found him. I also beleive he was found alive but hardly stood any chance of making it. I don’t think that is poor reporting on KDKA’s behalf.

    This is a sad, sad thing to happen and I’m sure he was a wonderful man who will be missed. His family is in our thoughts!
