OGDEN, Utah (AP) -- Two Czech tourists are back on dry land after getting stuck in mud at the Great Salt Lake.
The mother and son were driving their SUV near Monument Point about 25 miles south of Snowville around noon Wednesday when they saw tracks going off into the mud. They followed the tracks with their SUV, but after about 500 yards, their vehicle was axle-deep in the alkali mud.
Box Elder County Sheriff's deputies say an passer-by alerted authorities.
About eleven-hours later, after search and rescue teams on all-terrain-vehicles pushed and pulled, they finally got the tourists out.
