ANCHORAGE, Alaska (CBSDFW/AP) – A 39-year-old Texas man is recovering in an Alaska hospital after he got lost while hiking on a mountain.

Alaska State Troopers say Scott Hueske was rescued Monday morning after he got lost on the Portage Trail, prompting an overnight search-and-rescue effort that also involved the Alaska National Guard.

KTUU says the Arlington, Texas, man had been wearing a sweater and pants but wasn’t carrying survival gear Sunday when he got stuck on Mount Maynard south of Anchorage.

Hueske told authorities he could not walk any farther because of an injured leg.

Megan Peters with the Alaska State Troopers spoke with 1080 KRLD’s Kelli Wiese about the search and rescue operation.

Troopers say Hueske was found at about 8:30 a.m. Monday and transported to Providence Alaska Medical Center with potentially life-threatening injuries that were cold-weather related.

Hospital spokeswoman Ginger Houghton says Hueske is listed in good condition Tuesday.
