EASTON -

An evening walk-turned-emergency concluded with a happy ending Friday night when rescuers located a man who talk a wrong turn in the woods.

News 12 is told that a man got tired while walking his dog with his daughter in Trout Brook Valley on the Western border and decided to turn back. His daughter continued on the trail.

The man ended up making a wrong turn.

First responders were able to locate the man about 30 minutes after a call came in. They say they were concerned about man being injured or fatigued, along with the evening hours and rainy weather about to settle in.

Easton Fire Chief Steve Waugh says the mix of rain and cool temperatures could become life-threatening and lead to hypothermia.

Fire officials recommend people bring a cellphone, food, water and a jacket with them when in the woods.
