The sheriff's department got a call about the man in the Town of Byron to the east of Tomah about 4 p.m. Thursday. The Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources and Oakdale firefighters joined in the search.

They were able to track his bare footprints in the snow and noticed he was also bleeding. Authorities say the man was found near the Union Pacific Railroad tracks. Deputies used liners from their coats and a face mask to protect the man until EMT's could arrive to treat the man.

He went to Tomah Memorial Hospital with life-threatening injuries.
