Firefighters Rescue Man Who Became Stuck in Mud in Salem – NBC Boston

Good News Notes:

Firefighters are being credited with an amazing rescue of a man who was trapped in mud in Salem, Massachusetts.

The incident happened during low tide Wednesday, so the North River was all mud.

“I took a look out at the river and noticed a man stuck in the mud,” said witness Christina Stout.

“He wasn’t really familiar with the area, so he started walking out toward the water,” said the man’s girlfriend, who did not want to be identified.

She says her boyfriend had gone out to fish.

“He said it was fine, just a little muddy, then all of a sudden, he took a couple steps and he was, like, thigh-deep in the mud and couldn’t get out,” she said.

When firefighters arrived, they knew rescuing the man would be a challenge.

“He had no chance of getting out of there himself,” said Salem Fire Captain Richard Thomas….”
