He was found unconscious and taken to the clinic more than eight hours after he left home, but was unable to be revived. 

His wife Faye noticed the next day that he had made a 30 second call to 9-1-1 that afternoon, which the RCMP dispatch centre confirms was answered, but where it went after that is unknown. However, police told the newspaper that the call was not dropped, meaning it was likely being transferred to B.C. Ambulance when it was lost. 

BCAS can’t say yet whether it received the call or not, and the incident is now being investigated.

Faye Mease is quoted as saying she believes her husband would still be alive if emergency services had been deployed, and wants to sue whoever is responsible, arguing it was hypothermia that killed him, not the heart attack.
