The body of a homeless man was found just before dawn Monday on a Los Angeles Skid Row sidewalk, but it was unclear if the death was caused by the record cold.

City News Service said the name of the man, who appeared to be in his late 50s, wasn't released.

In Angeles National Forest, where overnight temperatures have been dropping into the 20s, 28-year-old Danny Kim of Arcadia, was found Sunday night after surviving 26 hours hiking in the frigid West Fork wilderness.

Kim was airlifted to a hospital for treatment of hypothermia.
