Police said officers and firefighters helped a homeless man out of the woods after he reported he was no longer able to walk due to the cold. 

The Madison Police Department said it received a 911 call from a 48-year-old homeless man Sunday at 4:32 p.m. saying he was drinking and that he couldn't walk due to possible frostbitten feet. 

Officers and firefighters fanned out into the forest off the 4600 block of Lien Road on Madison's east side to search for the man.

First responders found the man and placed him on a sled. The rescue team pulled him north past the railroad tracks to an ambulance on North Thompson Drive. 

Information about the 48-year-old's condition Monday afternoon was not immediately available.
