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.
