HAYWOOD CO., NC (FOX Carolina) -

Dispatchers said a rescue is underway for a person trapped in a Haywood County lake and unable to free themself.

EMS dispatchers said Lake Junaluska at Lakeshore Drive had been drained for the winter so the rescue couldn't be classified as a "water rescue."

Dispatchers said the person is stuck up to their knees in mud in the middle of the lake, but there have been no reported medical issues or injuries.
