Greenland firefighters rescue man stuck in mud for over an hour


GREENLAND- A D.F. Richard employee is back to work Thursday after he was stuck in waist-deep mud and had to be rescued.

Greenland Deputy Fire Chief Myrick Bunker said that John Hanscom was filling a propane tank Wednesday afternoon when he sunk into the mud. The home is under construction and no one lives there. Hanscom was able to call his boss to get help. It took firefighters nearly 90 minutes to free him.

Myrick says it was a difficult rescue as the ground was acting like quick sand.

Hanscom was not injured.
