Carmi, Ill. – A woman was sent to the hospital with non-life threatening injuries after spending more than a day in the mud.
39-year-old Amy Chittwood of Carmi reportedly injured her hip after falling down an embankment near the Little Wabash River Saturday morning.
She was stuck thigh-deep in the mud until White County EMTs arrived on the scene Sunday morning.
News 3 reports the EMTs were called after a fisherman noticed Chittwood earlier on Sunday. Her calls for help were drowned out by a nearby dam.
