VIDEO: Two People Rescued from Boat Stuck in the Mud Near the Dumbarton Bridge

ALVISO (KRON) — Two people who got their fishing boat stuck in the bud are safe after a rescue involving Menlo Park firefighters and the Coast Guard.

Larry Wunsch says he just missed the channel marker near the Dumbarton Bridge Monday evening and got stuck in the mud.

Wunsch says he got trapped just as the tide was going out. He figured he and his passenger would be stuck until the tide came back in.

At the same time a large rescue operation was underway involving authorities from Menlo Park, Alviso, Fremont, and the Coast Guard. The boat was eventually located in Fremont.

Wunsch says he wanted to stay with the boat despite the growing cold but the Coast Guard said he had to come ashore.

Wunsh says no one was hurt and he’ll go back to pick up the boat during the day on Tuesday.
