Video Released Of Authorities Rescuing Man Who Was Stuck In Quicksand
SALT LAKE CITY, Utah – A man was rescued in Zion National Park over the weekend after he got stuck in quicksand.
Park officials said a 34-year-old from Arizona was hiking the Left Fork trail known as the Subway route when his leg became buried to his knee in quicksand. His hiking partner had to walk for three hours before she could get service to call 911.
Once authorities reached the hiker, it took them an additional two hours to free him.
They had to spend the night in the cold and snow before the weather cleared enough for a helicopter to extract the hikers.
Due to 10 hours of exposure in the cold water, the man needed medical attention.
