Heinous Hike

A panicked father was reunited with his son after the young man became lost approximately one mile from the eastern end of Palo Verde Lake in Alpine, according to a press release by the San Diego County Sheriff's Department.

On February 19 at around 6:00 p.m., Royal Magnus called sheriff's deputies to report that Zane Magnus, 19, had left home at 10:00 a.m. to kayak and possibly do some hiking. At 4:00 p.m., he called to say he'd be home in about an hour but failed to show. Calls to his cell phone went unanswered.

Deputies conducted a preliminary search but, due to weather in the low 40s, were unable to find Zane. A search-and-rescue team and a Coast Guard helicopter were then called to the scene. After a 15-minute search, the helicopter located him and airlifted him to Gillespie Field, where his father was waiting. Paramedics found the teenager disoriented and cold but in good condition.

The low 40's????????? AAAAAAAhahahahahahahahahahahahaha! My father would've slapped me upside the head and laughed at me if I had to be rescued in 40 degree weather! I've got tears in my eyes I'm laughing so hard...I've grilled in shorts in the middle of winter in Chicago while flakes of snow the size of a Buick hit me.
