CONEMAUGH TOWNSHIP — A man fishing where Aultman Run and the Conemaugh River meet became stuck in the mud Friday morning.

Blairsville Volunteer Fire Department Chief George Burkley said the man, who rescuers did not identify, was found along with his kayak near Clarksburg Road around 9:45 a.m.

“He was in it up to his waist, up to his chest,” Burkley said. “A couple firemen assisted him.”

The man was not injured. Saltsburg and Tunnelton-Conemaugh Township firefighters also were dispatched by Indiana County Emergency Management Agency.
