NEW YORK (AP) — A New York City subway construction worker who got stuck chest-deep in mud for nearly four hours says he’s looking forward to having a beer, relaxing and golfing after he gets out of the hospital.

Joseph Barone of Lyndhurst, N.J., told the New York Post it got extremely cold the minute the mud sucked him in.

He’s being treated at Weill Cornell Medical Center following Tuesday’s ordeal. He’s in serious but stable condition.

Barone was working on the Second Avenue subway in Manhattan when he became stuck in the tunnel 75 feet below ground.

More than 150 firefighters helped to rescue him.

Barone says the rescuers kept reassuring him. He says he remained calm but did worry who would provide for his family if he didn’t make it.
