Two boys rescued from muddy quarry

Two adolescent boys whose legs were immersed in mud were rescued yesterday after firefighters crawled over a ladder and plywood and pulled them from a rain-soaked sand quarry in Baltimore County, according to the county fire department. "The big thing is they were 20 to 30 feet from where anybody could grab them," said Capt. James M. Korn, who could not say why the boys were at Lafarge North America's sand plant on Earls Road in Chase. Firefighters received a call from a plant employee about 2:30 p.m. Korn did not name the boys, who, he said, were not injured.
