An Arizona man is recovering from hypothermia after he climbed a snow-capped mountain in shorts and a tank top to win a free pizza. The Coconino County Sheriff's Office says the 30-year-old Flagstaff man called for help on Tuesday morning after getting stuck on Mount Elden. Authorities say the man wanted to hike up the mountain early in the morning, despite heave snow, so he could get to the top before the cutoff time to qualify for a free pizza from a local business.
As the man hiked, the snow got heavier and the temperature plunged. A Forest Service employee spotted the hiker from a lookout town and brought him inside until a search-and-rescue crew arrived. There's no world on if the man got his free pizza.
