Hunter rescued from muddy river in New Hampshire

The man was reportedly stuck in a particulary muddy waist-deep section of the Squamscott River.

A man was rescued after falling into a river while hunting on Sunday afternoon in Stratham, New Hampshire, according to NBC10 Boston.

The Stratham fire department reportedly responded to a call around 2 p.m. after a man fell into a river near College Road. NBC10 Boston reports he fell waist-deep into a particularly muddy section when he got too close to the edge of the Squamscott River while hunting with another man.

The second hunter was unable to pull the stuck man out of the mud.

The fire department called for a fire rescue boat from Newmarket, a neighboring town, according to NBC10 Boston.


NBC10 Boston wrote that while firefighters worried the man would have hypothermia after being rescued, he was reportedly fine and was able to walk away from the scene by himself.
