Naked hiker rescued after getting stranded in suburban Los Angeles

A hiker who got lost in hills in suburban Los Angeles was pictured getting rescued while completely in the nude.

Witnesses raised the alarm around 8:45 p.m. Monday after hearing someone crying for help in Chatsworth, the Los Angeles Fire Department said.

The stranded man was found by chopper around 45 minutes later — with photos obtained by CBS Los Angeles showing him waving for help while completely in the buff.

The photos, which digitally obscured anything intimate, showed him standing with his hands raised high while under a spotlight.

The unidentified man is thought to have been missing in the remote location since around 4 p.m., CBS Los Angeles said, without saying if it was known why he was naked.
