ATLANTA, GA (CNN) - It was a different and dirty kind of rescue in Atlanta as fire crews rushed to save a man from drowning in mud.
Authorities say the man was walking near a construction site that morning, when he walked through a muddy area and began to sink.
He was reportedly there for hours before someone called for help.
Rescue crews had to move mud from his face just so he could breathe.
They got him out and he was taken to the hospital. Officials say he is going to be fine.
