Eight New Jersey State Troopers worked together to help save a man who was stuck in a swamp in Union County.

The first two troopers on the scene on the shoulder of the turnpike broke off a tree limb but the victim couldn't hold onto it.

More troopers arrived and they formed a human chain.

One officer grabbed a flotation device and used it to pull the man to safety.
