Teenager trapped waist-deep in mud for two hours
WESTTOWN, NY (WABC) -- A teenager was trapped waist-deep in the mud for two hours before rescuers could pull him to safety.
15-year-old Spencer Lozza was riding his ATV in a marshy area in Westtown, Orange County when the vehicle got stuck.
When Lozza got off, he started sinking himself.
Family and friends tried to get him out with ropes, but were not able to, so his panicked mother called 911.
It took rescuers two hours to pull Lozza out. Lozza says the whole experience was pretty uncomfortable, but he is doing just fine.
