Rescued From Quicksand Utah, Utah authorities say they rescued a 25-year-old man who was stuck in a pool of quicksand for eight hours.
The Wayne County Sheriff’s Office says dispatchers were contacted at 5 p.m. Wednesday by a Florida military agency about an emergency alert beacon transmitting from an area along the Dirty Devil River.
Police tell KTVX of Salt Lake City (http://bit.ly/tQ6S7E ) a helicopter spotted the man stuck in a thick, muddy, wet substance.
Early rescue attempts were unsuccessful, but a search and rescue squad finally pulled him to safety early about 2 a.m. Thursday.
The man was taken to the Sevier County Medical Center for treatment. His name was not released.
