JACKSON, N.J., July 9 (UPI) -- A man needed a mechanic's help to extricate himself from a water slide ride at a Six Flags theme park in New Jersey, the parks' spokeswoman said.

The man, who spokeswoman Kristin Siebeneicher described only as tall, became "wedged under the front lip of a log boat" while on the Saw Mill Log Flume ride on Saturday, the Asbury Park (N.J.) Press said. A mechanic was called and removed protective padding and the man was able to squeeze out of the ride without injury.

The log ride includes a four story plunge down a track into a pool of water.
