A Life Flight helicopter dropped a sleeping bag, food, water and supplies to start a fire to Utah State University student Max Susman, 19. Members of the search and rescue team were going to hike in to stay the night with Susman, who went hiking about noon and left his car parked near the 2nd Dam in Logan Canyon.

At about 6 p.m. Susman became stranded and called for help. Authorities determined he didn't have the proper clothing and supplies to stay the night.

A press release by the Cache County Sheriff's Office said that a helicopter would retrieve Susman at first light Monday.

The sheriff's office is reminding people to be prepared for outdoor excursions with proper equipment and supplies, and to be familiar with the area.
