Man who survived week in car at bottom of Missouri ravine dies

LEE’S SUMMIT, Mo. — A Missouri man who survived a week at the bottom of a ravine after his car went off the road has died, police said Sunday.

Ryan Linneman, 37, died as a result of injuries suffered in the incident, according to Sgt. Chris Depue, a spokesman for the Lee’s Summit Police Department.

Linneman was found a week after his family reported him missing on Oct. 10.

His 2004 Honda Accord had gone off a road near Kansas City, police said at the time, and came to rest at the bottom of a 50-foot ravine, where he was discovered by a motor biker riding off-trail.

Linneman was taken to a hospital in critical condition with multiple fractures and severe frostbite, Depue said at the time.
