Man stuck in mud on Chena River rescued

At about 11:15 this morning, Fairbanks Police and Fire units responded to the Chena Wayside campground.

The state division of forestry had called for help to get a man out of the mud just off the river bank near Airport Way and University Avenue.
Police said first reports indicated the man couldn't get out of the river because he was injured.
Firefighters took a ladder down the steep riverbank, and laid it on the mud to crawl out and pull the victim from the river.
