National Flag of the United States of America.

Puyallup, Washington:  A fire department spokesman says rescue workers have freed a 16-year-old boy who spent about five hours stuck in mud up to his thighs in a muddy stream in Puyallup, Washington.

A Central Pierce Fire and Rescue spokesman says the boy and a friend wandered away from a skateboard park about 1 p.m. Monday and ended up at the stream near the Puyallup River.

Spokesman Ed Hrivnak says the 16-year-old got stuck. The spokesman says the friend spent hours trying to help, then walked to a nearby fire station at about 5 p.m. to get assistance.

Crews managed to free the teen by about 6 p.m. Hrivnak says the boy was cold but didn't seem to be injured.

Puyallup is about 5 miles east of Tacoma.
