STORYLINE: Authorities have rescued a hiker who got stranded in a creek during winter weather at Zion National Park in Utah after his leg got stuck in quicksand. Zion National Park says the 34-year-old man from Arizona and his companion were unable to free him after his leg got buried knee-deep in quicksand on Saturday afternoon. The man's friend left him with gear to keep warm and went looking for help. She called 911 about three hours later once she reached an area with cell service. The stranded man and his companion suffered from hypothermia. Late in the night, rescuers worked for two hours to free the hiker. They had to spend the night with the hiker as four additional inches of snow fell overnight. Winter storms had decreased visibility Sunday morning. Eventually, a helicopter was used to take the hiker out of the area. He was brought to a hospital.=========================================================== Clients are reminded: (i) to check the terms of their licence agreements for use of content outside news programming and that further advice and assistance can be obtained from the AP Archive on: Tel +44 (0) 20 7482 7482 Email: info@aparchive.com(ii) they should check with the applicable collecting society in their Territory regarding the clearance of any sound recording or performance included within the AP Television News service (iii) they have editorial responsibility for the use of all and any content included within the AP Television News service and for libel, privacy, compliance and third party rights applicable to their Territory.
