Teen fisherman safely rescued after he gets stuck in mud
A teenage fisherman who became stuck up to his knees in some thick mud in a southern New Jersey waterway has been safely rescued.
Brick police say the teen was in a Manasquan River tributary and was wading out in low tide to see if he could do some fishing when he got stuck around 3:15 p.m. Saturday.
The boy then used his cellphone to call police. He was freed about 15 minutes later by officers and firefighters, who lowered a ladder down and helped pull him to safety.
The boy was wearing fishing waders when he was found and was not injured. His name and age were not disclosed.
