CORRECTION: An earlier version of this story misspelled Samuel Jonesi's last name.

COLUMBIA — At 5:38 a.m. on Friday two Air Force ROTC cadets found a man lying in a ditch on the south side of Stankowski Field at the base of Crowder Hall on the MU campus.

Lt. Col. Brent Unger said the two cadets, Samuel Jonesi* and Joshua Foley, were on their way to physical training when they spotted the man. He was incoherent, appeared to have lacerations on the left side of his face, and his body temperature seemed low, Unger said.

“It seemed strange,” Unger said. “He wasn’t wearing workout clothes. He was wearing civilian clothes and was completely drenched.”

Unger said Jonesi and Foley called 911 immediately and carried the man to the cadet office in Crowder 115. MU police, paramedics and members of the fire department arrived on the scene and stabilized him.

Unger said the man was responsive when paramedics took him to University Hospital.
