RICHMOND, VA (WWBT) -

Richmond Fire and EMS' river rescue crews were called into action late Sunday afternoon after a man became stuck in the mud along the James River near Hollywood Cemetery.

Crews were called to the scene near Oregon Hill just before 7:30 p.m., with rescuers arriving on scene in minutes. 

Boats were launched and they were able to garner a visual on the man and, using a combination of water rescue units and Med Flight, they were able to get him back to dry land about an hour after the initial call came in.

Fire officials said no injuries were suffered by the man needing rescue or any responding crews.
