Hunter finds naked man wandering in woods four days after US festival – watch

Festivalgoer says he was beaten up before being found near TomorrowWorld in Georgia

A festivalgoer has been found naked in woods near the site of US dance festival TomorrowWorld – four days after the festival ended.

The anonymous man was found on October 2 by passing hunter Casey Sanders, who waited with the festivalgoer for an hour while he regained his senses.

Sanders filmed the encounter on his phone, which has gone viral on YouTube and can be seen below. In the five-minute film, he can be seen expressing his surprise at encountering “a man holding a walking stick with not a stitch of clothing on him”.

The man reveals that he was set upon by three men who “beat the crap” out of him. He said: “They dragged me out to the middle of nowhere, stripped me down and kicked me out.”

Several commenters on YouTube accused Sanders of acting aggressively to the stranger. In his own post, Sanders responded: “Sorry I wasn’t so trusting to a random stranger naked in a creek in the middle of the woods who couldn’t differ a dream for reality. I didn’t exactly have a script in my head of ‘This is what I’ll do when I find a naked man in a creek.”

TomorrowWorld took place on September 26–28 in Chattahoochee Hills in Georgia, with headline sets by Avicii, David Guetta and Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike.
