A Russian construction worker stuck in a pool of mud recently got the ride of his life when his co-worker used the arm of an excavator to help scoop him out. After a few failed attempts at having him pulled out, the operator decides to just grab him along with the clump of mud around him. Although we're not quite sure how the guy managed to even get waist-deep in a pool of mud, we're sure he was pretty happy to have his life saved and get a chance to ride in the scoop of an excavator at the same time.
