Guss Baker swamp rescue video: Helicopter spotted him after four days

Florida crews rescued a man who was stuck in a dense swamp for about four days.

The dramatic rescue was caught on camera Monday.

Efforts to find 55-year-old Guss Baker began last Thursday.

Authorities say he got lost on the property of a hunting club in Flagler County

Rescue crews searched the swampy area calling out his name.

Finally, they heard a faint "yes."

A helicopter crew spotted him sitting and shivering on a stump in knee-deep water.

Crews hoisted him up into the helicopter and took him to the hospital.

Authorities say Baker was seriously dehydrated and had hypothermia symptoms.

He is expected to make a full recovery.
