STANTON, Neb. (AP) _ Authorities have rescued a rural Madison man who got stuck in mud and water while duck hunting in northeast Nebraska.

The Stanton County Sheriff’s Office says 56-year-old John Johnson was hunting alone Saturday morning southeast of Stanton when he moved into a marshy area and his hip waders began filling with water. He soon was mired up to his neck.

Johnson and his predicament were discovered by a game warden who was in the area to check hunting permits.

Rescuers called to the scene in Wood Duck Wildlife Management Area used ropes and a boat to get Johnson back on solid ground.

He was taken to a hospital.
