Two Teens Rescued After Being Trapped In Mud

Two Teens Rescued After Being Trapped In Mud

Two teens needed help from the Rapid City Fire Department after getting stuck in mud Thursday night.

Officials with the department say they were called to Parkview Softball Complex because two 13-year-old boys fell about 15 feet into a trench after the ground near the edge of a hole gave way. The mud was so wet and heavy that one boy was stuck up to his knees and the other to his waist.

Emergency crews rescued the boy stuck up to his knees with a rope, but had a harder time getting the other out. They needed to remove some of the mud around the boy, which according to authorities was difficult. They used a special tool to pump air into the mud to create air pockets. After about an hour, the second boy was freed from the mud.

Both teens were taken to the hospital to be looked at.
