A K-9 unit successfully led officers to an at-risk man found alive, but with injuries to his wrist, in a wooded area near Merrionette Park. The Cook County Sheriff's Office on Friday reported that just before 4:30 on Thursday afternoon, they received a report of a suspicious vehicle near the 34-hundred block of West 119th Street and learned the vehicle's driver, a 24 year old Evergreen Park man, maybe despondent and try to hurt himself. The search involved a K-9 unit and a helicopter and once found the man was hospitalized for his injuries.
