Emma Tetewsky, a woman from Massachusetts, United States, went missing on June 26. There were no clues about her whereabouts until Monday, July 3. Rescuers located her a week later in a state park, and she was alert and conscious. Apparently, the 31-year-old woman had been stuck in the mud for about three days.
The Easton Police and Fire Department reported that the woman had officially been missing around noon on June 26 at Pinewood Pond in Stoughton and Lake Massapoag in Sharon, Massachusetts. With initial discouraging results for the search, it was actually a pair of hikers who heard Tetewsky screaming for help near the Borderland State Park, but they were unable to find her.
After the hikers called the police, they promptly arrived at the scene and trudged 50 miles through mud and ground to be able to reach her. She was later carried to land and was assisted by the Easton firefighters’ medical team. It is also said that the authorities had to deploy all-terrain vehicles to conduct the rescue, due to the difficulties accessing the woman’s location. Following the operation, she was taken to a local hospital due to minor injuries. About the rescue, Easton Police Chief, Keith Boone, said:
“I’d like to commend our Easton officers, who blindly jumped into the water and followed the woman’s calls for help. Their immediate action resulted in saving Emma Tetewsky. We’d also like to thank our incredible Fire Department, Borderland State Park rangers, and the hikers who heard Emma and called 911. Without this coordinated effort, this rescue would not have been successful.”
