OCEAN VIEW, Del. (AP/WBOC)- A duck hunter and his dog have been rescued after they were stranded in a marshy area near the Indian River Bay.
    
Millville Volunteer Fire Company spokesman Bob Powell said a bystander reported that the man was having trouble getting back to his boat on Monday morning. The man left his boat to retrieve his dog but got stuck in the deep mud about a quarter mile from shore.
    
The U.S. Coast Guard sent divers and a helicopter from Coast Guard Air Station Atlantic City to the scene and the man refused medical attention at the scene. Powell said the man was wearing waders and was properly dressed for hunting on the water. He said the dog, a black lab, was in good shape too.
