El Paso, TX (KTSM) — University Medical Center is reaching out to the El Paso and surrounding communities this afternoon asking their assistance identifying a man who is currently unresponsive after being transported to the hospital by ambulance earlier this week.
The man, who is described as Hispanic, approximately 5-feet- tall, weighing 105 pounds, has brown eyes, salt and pepper hair and long wire-like mustache and beard.
The man was found unconscious on S. Hill St. and 3rd Ave in South El Paso on Monday, August 11th and was transported by ambulance to UMC. He sustained a serious head injury and has unresponsive to medical personnel.
Officials with UMC tell us that they believe the man may be homeless and he may have also been friends with another homeless man known as "Cowboy" and was seen at the Opportunity Center on Myrtle Ave.
Anyone who knows the man's identity or where to locate his family is asked to call the UMC Case Management Department at (915) 491-0542.
