The search and rescue team tweeted photos from Joe from the hospital, posting also pictures of his hiking boots with noticeably worn and torn soles, writes KTLA.

Around 75, people split into 11 teams, combing the San Gabriel mountains north of Los Angeles, after Joe separated from the hiking group and was lost at the foot of Waterman Mountain. This happened 22 Jun.

Seven days later, around 11 in the morning on June 29, the search and rescue team of the sheriff’s department in Altadena finally found him in a gorge in the Devil's Canyon area, a few miles from where he was missing.

Joe heard the rescuers talking to someone from the camp, and called for help. The 73-year-old man had no visible traumatic injuries, and he was flown through the air to the hospital.

Officials learned that Joe had not eaten for at least five days and drank water from the Devil Canyon stream. To warm himself, he slept on hot stones and covered himself with a jacket.

While Joe had to survive in the wild, the region experienced moderate air temperatures and high humidity levels after heavy rains. Probably, all this together helped the man not to freeze and not die from dehydration.

“There were many tears and joy,” the rescuers said, “he is so happy and grateful that he came back and said that he would not go on any more hikes.”
