(Newser) – A homeless man who spent three days stuck in deep mud near the Rio Grande river in New Mexico was rescued after high school students on a field trip heard him yelling for help. Fire crews found the man stuck on a reed island and used a pulley system to bring him out of the mud and up a cliff, the AP reports. His freedom won't last long, however: Police discovered that the man is wanted on a felony warrant for aggravated assault and they plan to arrest him as soon is he is released from hospital, where he is being treated for hypothermia.

The man was identified as Clayton Senn, a transient who had been living near the river.
