Video: Coast Guard Rescues Man Stuck In Mud For Hours

A man who was 65 years old and had been stranded in mud since Monday in the area of Port Bolivar in Texas was rescued by the Coast Guard on Tuesday.

On Monday evening, while the man was pedaling his bicycle toward the ferry, just before dusk, his bike became stuck; he then attempted to walk, but he, too, became trapped and was unable to extricate himself.

At approximately four in the morning on Tuesday, deputies with the Galveston County Sheriff’s Office alerted watchstanders with the Coast Guard Sector Houston-Galveston and reported that the man was stranded in the mud on Bolivar Peninsula, which is located east of the Galveston north jetty, and the deputies were unable to approach him.

Here’s the video:

At the same time that personnel from the Galveston County Sheriff’s Office remained at the scene to vector in the helicopter crew, a crew from the Coast Guard Air Station in Houston launched in an MH-65 Dolphin helicopter to provide assistance. About to end of this news we can share the latest piece of news about Planned Musical Selections For April 18 Concert In Fredericksburg, Texas.
