Fisherman rescued from
mud at Loch Eigheach
A fisherman has been rescued after getting stuck waist-deep in mud for four-and-a-half hours.
A total of 26 firefighters helped to free the 73-year-old after he sank into mud at the side of Loch Eigheach in Perthshire.
The man got into difficulty while fishing with friends between Rannoch Lodge and Rannoch power station.
He had already been stuck for three hours before the group called for help at about 14:00 and was freed at 15:30.
The "group" later told The JT:"At the three hour mark, the pleasure in watching him struggle had begun to pall somewhat so we thought, what the hell, time to call for help or something. Whatever, right?"
