GRAND JUNCTION, Colo. (KKCO) - A nine-year-old boy has to be rescued by firefighters after getting stuck in the mud Monday afternoon.

It happened on North Sparn Ct. in Grand Junction when the boy’s bother says a mail carrier spotted the boy stuck in the yard, more than waist-deep and called for help
“This lady, the mail girl, she went to go drop off my mom's mail and she saw me get stuck in the mud and I couldn’t get out,” he says.

Firefighters say the mud was like quicksand that the more the boy struggled the deeper he sank.

They were able to pull him out and hose him off. He wasn’t hurt, just a little cold from all the mud and water.
