An unidentified man was admitted to San Francisco General Hospital on Wednesday in critical condition, according to the Department of Public Health.

The man is estimated to be about 66 years old. He was found by the San Francisco Fire Department on the evening of Saturday, July 16, near Golden Gate University, at 546 Mission St. between First and Second streets.

According to a DPH press release, the man appears to be white, with light brown eyes. He is 5-foot-2-inches tall and weighs about 130 lb.

What happened between the date the man was found on Mission Street and the date he was admitted to the hospital in critical condition is still unclear. Mission Local has reached out to the Department of Public Health for more information.

Anyone with information about the man’s identity is asked to contact the hospital’s sheriff’s department at 628-206-8063.

  1. Praying for our elderly and that more help is provided. I don’t recognize him but praying someone does to further help him. Very hard times and so heart breaking. Thank you for posting his story.

  2. He looks familiar… not 100 percent sure if he is a homeless guy that frequents downtown and the mission but he matches someone I’ve seen throughout the years. If he is, I’m sure other San Franciscans will recognize him as well.

    Hope he gets well soon and locates his family.
