SALT LAKE CITY -- A hiker unprepared for a storm had to be rescued from the hills above the University of Utah Sunday night.

Search and rescue crews were called to the Bonneville Shoreline Trail just before 8 p.m.

Deputies says the man and his dog were hiking the trail, but he wasn't dressed properly for the cold weather.

Crews reached the man at about 9:20 and helped bring him down the mountain.

Officials say the man is not hurt, just cold.
