Dog owner rescued from Hythe Quay

UPDATED: A DOG owner had to be rescued by firefighters and the coastguard after getting stuck in mud trying to rescue his dog.

The coastguard was called at about 4pm yesterday after reports of a man sinking into the mud in the river by Hythe Quay, Colchester, after trying to save his pet.

Walton and West Mersea coastguards went to assist fire crews who were able to pull him and the dog out.

Oh dear! Don't they mean going "into the mud" or "onto the river bed"? It would be hard for a normal human to go "into the quay" unless like some comic book hero or villain, he had large drills instead of feet.
.
He went into "sinking mud". Does the writer mean "stinking mud"? That would be much more descriptive of the river at the Hythe as I remember it.
.
Does mud "sink"? Maybe geologists and others would discuss?
