Cottonwood Heights police believe a medical crisis led to the death of a 75-year-old New York man whose body was found near the mouth of Big Cottonwood Canyon.
Sgt. Corbett Ford said a 911 call came in mid-afternoon on Wednesday from the canyon's park-and-ride lot. Police and paramedics responded to find the victim, Gary Ryan, unresponsive and apparently in full cardiac arrest.
Efforts to revive him were unsuccessful.
