Lost Man Survives in Calif. Woods

GORMAN, Calif. (AP) — A 25-year-old man who wandered into the Angeles National Forest a month ago and got lost has been found alive, police said.

Sean Kelly, who was reported missing Sept. 30, was found by a hunter Monday in the Knapp Ranch area of the forest, about 60 miles north of downtown Los Angeles, sheriff's Deputy Michael Lorenci said.

Kelly was too weak to walk out, so rescuers airlifted him to Henry Mayo Newhall Memorial Hospital, where he was treated for exposure.

Kelly told the hunter he had been lost for about two weeks and survived by eating roots and bugs, Lorenci said. To survive, he covered himself with dirt and branches at night to keep warm.

``We're all surprised that he'd been out there for 30 days and that he survived,'' Lorenci said.
