Utah’s State Medical Examiners are looking into why a hiker from Alabama died while hiking in Kane County earlier this week. It may have been the high temperatures.

According to the Kane County Sheriff’s Office, the 62-year old man, identified as Lane Friedman, separated from his family on Tuesday as they became disoriented due to the heat, and he was apparently of the mind he knew which way to go to seek help. Meanwhile, his wife and children were able to find their way back and used another hiker’s phone to call for help.

It wasn’t until the next day, Wednesday, that Mr. Friedman’s body was found in a slot canyon by personnel on a Utah Department of Public Safety Helicopter.

The Kane County Sheriff’s Office, in their press release, thanked Garfield County Sheriff’s Office personnel and the Department of Public Safety for their help.
