King County Search and Rescue and Enumclaw Fire/King County Fire District 28 rescued a transient man stranded over an embankment this morning, Feb 4, in the Mud Mountain Dam area.

The man had jumped over the dam fence looking for a place to camp. A dam employee today heard the man yelling for help and called police. Some reports say the man became stuck on Sunday, meaning he was stranded for a possible four days, but the King County Sheriff’s Office has yet to confirm.

Enumclaw Fire reported on Twitter the man has been transferred to Medic One.

Guardian 2, the King County Sheriff’s helicopter, was involved in the search and rescue effort.
