Wauconda woman stuck in mud for 2+ hours
A Wauconda woman was stuck in mud for more than two hours Monday night before a nearby resident heard her cries for help and called 911.
The 57-year-old woman was in a swampy area near Route 176 and Ridge Street close to Bangs Lake and was attempting to clean out a beaver dam when she sank into the mud.
Police said the woman was out in the marsh alone.
The resident heard her calls for help and called for rescue teams at 10:33 p.m., according to the Wauconda Fire District.
It took crews 45 minutes to get the woman, who was stuck up to her shoulders, out of the mud.
She was taken to Advocate Condell Medical Center in Libertyville as a precaution, officials said.
The woman was conscious and alert throughout the rescue.
Wauconda police assisted the fire district in the rescue.
