Hypothermic Man Rescued from Mud on Swan Creek

A Harford County man is recovering after becoming stuck in the mud for eight hours on Maid’s Island in Swan Creek.

The call came in just after 11 p.m. Friday night. When first responders got to Country Club Road and Creek Road in Havre de Grace, they were able to make verbal contact with the man, but the water was too deep to reach him.

The Susquehanna Hose Company sent a rescue boat to Maid’s Island, where the victim was loaded on a stretcher and brought back to paramedics waiting on shore. He was rushed to the hospital with hypothermia symptoms.
