A man walking near a construction site in Atlanta was nearly killed when he fell into the site and became buried alive in mud.
The unidentified man was walking across a muddy area near a bridge’s construction zone along Donald Lee Hollowell near Law Street around 8 a.m. Saturday when he began to sink in the mud.
Dramatic video captured at the scene shows the man so immersed in the mud that his figure is virtually indistinguishable.
Atlanta Fire Rescue crews who responded to the scene had to first move the mud away from his face so he could continue to breathe and then worked for nearly one hour before they were able to pull him from the mud, using a ladder and their own strength.
The man was taken to nearby Grady Hospital where he was treated for hypothermia. He is expected to make a full recovery.
