WEB EXCLUSIVE: Woman gets stuck in marsh trying to save dog

SAVANNAH, GA (WTOC) - A dramatic rescue Tuesday night after a woman went into the marsh below the Moon River Bridge.

The woman was trying to save a dog she says jumped off of the bridge.

Southside Fire says the woman and the dog should be okay after being stuck in the marsh for nearly an hour.

They were able to rescue the woman with a boat.

"It's probably two feet deep of soft mud. It's kind of like quick sand and once you get stuck you can't get out. And the tide was coming in which created a vacuum. We got her out and everything is good," Southside Fire Chief Wayne Noha said.

The dog had a tag that said the name is Tequila, but the phone number on the tag went to a disconnected line.

If you recognize the dog, call Southside Fire.
