But the hiker had to call for help around 9 a.m. Tuesday as the weather became worse.

“The weather at the time was moderate to heavy snow, with approximately 3 to 5 inches of snow on the ground,” the Coconino County Sheriff’s Office said in a statement.

A U.S. Forest Service employee brought the man, who was suffering from hypothermia, inside the lookout tower to get warm before a search team showed up, the Republic reported.

It’s unclear if the man ended up receiving the free pizza.
