Community members have identified a jogger and police are working to notify his family after he was found not breathing on a sidewalk in Algonquin and rushed to the hospital.
The Algonquin Police Department and Algonquin-Lake in the Hills Fire Protection District responded around 7:39 p.m. Saturday to the 100 block of South Oakleaf Road.
Paramedics received a call for a person who was found unconscious and not breathing in front of a residence.
The person appeared to have had a medical emergency on the sidewalk, according to Algonquin Deputy Police Chief Ryan Markham.
The man was transported to a local hospital but authorities had been unable to identify him.
Markham said on Monday the man was incapacitated and remained in the hospital.
The man, referred to as a “John Doe,” was jogging in the area before he was found, Markham said.
He was described as a white male, approximately 60-70 years old, with dark-colored and gray hair along with gray stubble facial hair.
The man was wearing a dark blue t-shirt with “Athletico” printed on the front and green and beige jogging shorts.
Markham said members of the police department were actively investigating and sought the public’s assistance.
The police department said in an update on Tuesday that community members helped identify the “John Doe.”
Markham said the department was working to make notifications with his relatives to advise them of his condition.
“The Algonquin Police Department would like to thank everyone who provided tips and assistance during our attempt to identify the jogger,” the department said.
