I've put myself in potentially hypothermic on a couple of occasions. Part of it was get-home-itis and part was not being prepared for the unexpected. I found myself in the mountains at nightfall, soaked to the skin. In July. It got down to about 50 degrees and I was starting have trouble concentrating on riding.
Packing rain gear would have made all the difference in the world. Now I keep a cheap set in Ziplok bags under the seat.
Glad to hear that your buddy made it through as well as he did.
