    Missing jogger spent 4 days stuck

    Missing jogger spent 4 days stuck in waist-deep Florida swamp near university

    ASSOCIATED PRESS


    ORLANDO, Fla., Sept. 5 ó A missing runner was rescued from a Florida swamp after spending four days stuck in the muck with only the waist-deep water to drink.
    Eddie Meadows, 62, had left for a run over his lunch hour Thursday but never returned to his office at a nearby University of Central Florida research park, authorities said.

    He was spotted among the brush and trees Monday morning as friends and colleagues searched for him.
    Meadows was parched and covered with bug bites and had consumed swamp water to stay hydrated during the four day ordeal, said university police Sgt. Woody Furnas. Furnas said the area has thick silt and muck that can act like glue.
    ''He had great spirits, and he was very adamant about getting a drink of water,'' Furnas said. ''He said he slept a lot and stayed down in the water.
    Furnas described Meadows, a contract employee with the U.S. Army Program Executive Office for Simulation, Training and Instrumentation, as ''a strong guy. He's in good shape. He's a marathoner.''
    Meadows was taken to Florida Hospital East. A hospital spokeswoman would not discuss his condition.


    How do you get yourself stuck up to your ass in the swamp?

    We are the thin blue line
    between you
    and all the money in the world.

    And no you can't have any.

    Kind of struck the same nerve with me, Ghost. Got that "something missing" feeling. But then I asked myself, why do I care? I'll let you know if I come up with a good answer.
    And Shepards we shall be,
    for thee, My Lord, for thee,
    Power hath descended forth from Thy hand,
    That our feet may swiftly carry out Thy Command.
    So we shall flow a river forth to Thee
    And teeming with souls will it ever be.
    In Nomine Patris, Et Filli, Et Spiritus Sancti.
