The man was able to walk out of the water and was checked by medics.

A faster than expected tide left a hunter stuck in Ebey Slough Saturday morning.

Around 10:15 Snohomish 911 received a report from relatives of a hunter that he was stuck somewhere near the Snohomish River.

Crews from Everett Fire and Snohomish Fire District 4 began looking for the hunter between Rotary Park and the sloughs surrounding Highway 529.

He was located by the Crew of Engine 1 in Ebey Slough.

Given concerns over hypothermia due to the amount of time the man was in the water, Everett Firefighters used rescue swimmers, ropes and a backboard to safely bring the hunter to shore.

Once on shore he was checked over by medics and reunited with his family with no apparent injuries.
