Officers Struggle Through Sea of Mud . V ' 1 ! Little Girl Saved From Boggy Lake Bed Sheriffs officers and firemen waded through a sea of waist-deep mud to rescue a little girl who became mired In the "dry" fists of Big Bear Lake yesterday. Towed out cold and "shaken" but otherwise unhurt after two hours on a tiny patch of solid ground in the middle of a morass was S-year-old Susan Gilbert of EL Monte. Big Bear Lake sheriffs Deputy Roland L. Mellinger got stuck in waist-deep mud in a 5-foot-wide channel just a few feet fmm the shivering pirl and had to retreat to more firm footing. Rescuers then threw a rope across the channel and directed her to slip the looped end orer her head and under her arms. The " four men who waded through 500 yards of mud to reach her then Jerked her quickly across the channel so that she did not sink into it Deputy Charles C. Woodman Jr. and Capt. John Poole of the Big Bear Lake Volunteer Fire Department each took a hand and with assistance from Mel-lineer and Assistant Fire Chief Vem Cawthorn, whisked Susan over the boggy lake bed to safety. She did not require medical treatment. "She could have drowned in that channel if she had fallen in, but she was real calm through the whole thing. She said she was cold and didn't know how she got stuck out there and she sure wouldn't do it again," said Woodman. Nevertheless, the rescue crew kept reassuring her and urging her to remain calm while the rescue was in progress. Woodman, in command due to the absence of substation commander Sgt. Charles Follett and Detective Jerome C Ringhofer, canceled tentative requests for a light helicopter and snowshoes after surveying the lake bed and determining that neither would be needed for the rescue. A Civil Defense rescue truck equipped with a winch was held in readiness by firemen. Sheriffs clerk Dorothy Clancy said she received a call of a girl in distress from Edith Ren-fro, who has a cabin on the south shore of the lake, at 12:29 p.m. The caller reported that Nancy Gilbert, 13, had managed to make shore but her sister had become bogged down in the mud midway between Fawnskin and Lagonita Point. The girls, who are vacationing with their parents. Mr. and Mrs. Roy Gilbert, at Fawnskin, had started across the flats Intending to cross from the north to the south shore about noon, not realizing that the dry lake is a quagmire in many spots. "Tlie rhannd in the middle is four or five feet deep and possible deeper in some places. It could be dangerous. This part of the lake has been dry most of the summer, but there still is water in the channel. I hope people and especially young people will stay away from it," said Woodman. Susan was wrapped in blankets and taken to her parents cabin in a sheriffs patrol car after the rescue. Deputy John C Nash and reserve Deputy William Thompson were among thosp who assisted. n "A .::-"-;: f P i J . . ... ; . 2 - - . ...
