ST. JOHNS COUNTY, Fla. -- A St. John's County man is recovering Wednesday after being stuck in a swampy area of Flagler County for nearly three days.

The Seminole County Sheriff's Office sent WFTV video of them lowering a rescuer to pull Guss Baker out of the swamp on the Turkey Island Hunt Club property Monday.

Deputies found Baker on a stump in nearly knee-deep water.

They said he was suffering from hypothermia and dehydration, but he's expected to make a full recovery.
