San Francisco General Hospital Officials Ask for Help Identifying Patient

View Comments ()



    The hospital has exhausted all of its usual channels for identifying a patient and is asking the public for help in finding his family.

    A man who was found critically injured Sunday in San Francisco's Duboce Triangle neighborhood has been identified after hospital officials asked Monday for the public's help in finding out his name.

    The man was found on the ground near Duboce Avenue and Church Street at about 7:30 a.m. Sunday and was taken to the hospital. It was not immediately clear how he was injured, San Francisco General Hospital spokeswoman Rachael Kagan said.

    He did not have a wallet, ID or other identifying items with him when he was found, so hospital officials today sought help in determining his identity.

    A neighbor called the man's family, who went to the hospital to identify him, Kagan said.
