In photos: Burnham lifeguard digs stranded man out of beach mud

A lifeguard dug a man out of the mud after he became stuck on Burnham-On-Sea's beach on Saturday (August 29th).

Lifeguard Simon Wresien, pictured below, rushed to free the stranded holidaymaker from a patch of mud between Burnham's jetty and Pavilion at 1pm.

Simon told "The man had ignored the red flags and walked out towards the sea at low tide. We spotted him sink knee-deep into the mud and were quickly on hand to help."

Simon added: "I went as close as possible in our beach buggy and then dug him out with my hands."

"The man, a holidaymaker from Birmingham, was shaken and rather embarrassed but fortunately it was only his pride that was hurt."
