This one showed up on a web search, maybe stranger yet.
NOLS student, hiker, gets stuck in quicksand/mud in the Dirty Devil River (southwest of Canyonlands NP, Utah). Helicopter arrives and they try pulling him out with the helicopter - and quit - worrying they'd rip him apart. Finally, they bracket him with rafts, and a couple guys in each raft hold him up, others dig and eventually he's out.
