sad news

this made me cry:


A San Francisco man who got stranded in the snowy wilderness with his family nearly two weeks ago was found dead Wednesday in a mountain creek, authorities said.

James Kim's body was discovered in Oregon's snowy Klamath Mountains two days after his wife and two daughters were rescued from their car, stuck on a remote road. Kim had set out on foot over the weekend to find help for his family.

A tearful Undersheriff Brian Anderson announced the discovery of the body, his voice breaking at one point. He gave no details on the cause of death or how far from the family's car Kim was found.
