FLAGLER COUNTY, Fla. -

A 55-year-old man was rescued after being stuck in a Flagler County swamp for four days.

Guss Baker was hoisted from the Turkey Island Hunt Club, where he went last Thursday but never returned.

Authorities found him on Monday in knee-deep water in a densely wooded area and had to use a helicopter to hoist him out.

Baker was suffering from hypothermia symptoms but is expected to make a full recovery.
