TV reporter unlikely to see his boots again after getting stuck in waist-deep mud

A TV news correspondent reporting from the scene of an unstable hillside in Azusa, Los Angeles on Friday got stuck in waist-high mud and had to be rescued.

Miguel Almaguer from NBC Nightly News was reporting in the hillside above the home of Dennis Sanderson when he got stuck in the mud.

Sanderson aided authorities in the rescue. According to Sanderson, Almaguer had intentionally waded into a pool of mud to demonstrate how thick it was.

But he was pulled out barefoot. “He’s probably never going to see those boots again,” said Roland Sprewell, captain with the County of Los Angeles Fire Department. After the rescue, Azusa police ordered news media and residents to evacuate the area.
