How rescued hiker survived days in the wilderness
Sounds like the guy was out of shape and hiked out a bit too far and was desperate for a shortcut on the return trip to his car.

At least six people have died this summer in the Kern River. 2017 was a big year with fifteen deaths and 2011 was also big with eleven deaths. The total since 1968 is over 300. It may not be the widest, deepest, or most amazing river in the world, but it definitely kills its share of people!
