CENTERVILLE — Rescue crews hoisted a man off of a mountain Saturday after hikers found him in Centerville Canyon without any clothes on.

About 2:30 p.m., authorities received a call from a group of hikers saying a man with no clothes on was lying in water along Deuel Creek Trail, according to Davis County Sheriff’s Sgt. DeeAnn Servey. Search and rescue crews were immediately dispatched to the canyon to try and locate the man.

When crews found the man he was in need of medical treatment for hypothermia.

“His vitals weren’t really holding and we felt it was necessary to call in LifeFlight and hoist him out of the area,” Servey said.

Due to his medical condition when crews found him, the man was unable to communicate with authorities.

Officials are unsure why the man was in the canyon with no clothes on, Servey said, and will attempt to talk to him after he’s been treated.
