Arizona utility worker finds stranded man in the desert

CHANDLER, Ariz. — A 78-year-old Arizona man who apparently spent several
days in the desert after his car got stuck was rescued when a utility worker
checking on power lines found him.

Feiertag had left his home in the Phoenix suburb of Chandler on Saturday to
drive to Arizona City to go shopping.

He was expected back that evening but didn’t return, and a daughter reported
him missing Sunday.

It wasn’t until Wednesday morning that the utility worker came across Feiertag
and his car in the desert near Tonopah west of Phoenix. He was dehydrated but
otherwise OK.

A Chandler police spokesman said Feiertag told the utility worker he’d been there several days but that is not certain.
