Man stuck in mud
A man got stuck in the mud at Emsworth after going to recover a paddle at Osprey Quay. He was unable to return to the shore so sat on a buoy until he was rescued by The Selsey and Hillhead Coastguard Rescue Teamsusing specialized equipment.
Coastguard advice is “'If you do find yourself stuck in the mud, try to spread your weight as much as possible, avoid moving and stay as calm as you can. Call 999 and ask for the Coastguard and we’ll get our specially trained teams out to you as quickly as possible. Discourage others from attempting to rescue you, since without the proper equipment they could become stuck in the mud as well.'
