A harrowing incident unfolded last night along the River Thames, where a man found himself trapped in the treacherous mud after falling from a height. The protracted and meticulously coordinated multi-agency response ultimately led to a successful rescue and yet another life saved.

The incident, which unfolded in Argyll Road, Woolwich, prompted a swift and comprehensive response from various emergency services and agencies. The collaborative effort involved specialized equipment and a team of dedicated professionals who worked tirelessly to extricate the trapped individual.
