A man and his dog were rescued Sunday by San Francisco Fire Department and San Francisco International Airport personnel, after getting stuck in waist-deep mud and water in San Francisco Bay near the airport, fire officials said on social media.
Fire officials used an airboat – with a large fan on the back, ideal for shallow-water applications – to reach the man, who was stuck near the end of North Access Road near the airport, according to SFFD social media. The man’s small dog was tracked from that spot and found a short time later.
No one was injured.
It wasn’t immediately known how the man got stuck, or why he was there.
