Blake Shelton Rescues Group of Strangers from Oklahoma Mud Hole

For the second time this year, Blake Shelton has helped rescued a few fellow Oklahomans from muddy peril.

Bryar Blanton, Lenyell Blanton, Josh Turner and Adrian Poplin were enjoying some time on the Washita River in Ardmore, Okla. when they found themselves in a predicament.

The youngster found themselves stuck inside of a huge mud hole without a way of getting their vehicle out. Two of the boys went walking up the road in hopes of finding someone who could pull them to safety. Thankfully, Shelton just happened to be hunting in the area near his home when he stumbled upon the young men.

“He told [Adrian and I] to hop in,” Blanton told Entertainment Tonight. “Then, we went back to the river [where my friends were stuck] and he tried to get them out with his truck. He couldn’t do it, so he said he would be back in 15 minutes with his tractor.”

Shelton, accompanied by his dog Betty, got to work and was able to get them out of their sticky situation. “After he helped us out, he talked to us for a minute then said he had to go,” Blanton said. “He had his bow with him, and he talked to us about hunting. He’s an all-around nice, caring guy.”

The country star responded to a tweet of appreciation from the boys that also included a group photo from the fateful day.

This is the second time Shelton has helped out a fellow Oklahoman this year. In June, the 39-year-old rescued a man whose truck became stuck in muddy flood waters during Tropical Storm Bill.
