A man who went missing after an electronic music festival in Scranton, Pennsylvania, was found alive, lodged waist-deep in a mucky swamp, according to the Times-Tribune.

Collin Burns, 20, from Hillsdale, N.J., was discovered around 4:30 p.m. Monday after a caller reported seeing him sitting on a guardrail on the Interstate 81, the newspaper reports.

Burns was reported missing on Sunday after the three-day outdoor rave that is the Camp Bisco music festival, held on Montage Mountain. The festival was started by Philly jam band Disco Biscuits in 1999.

WNEP reports that fire officials say Burns is in “satisfactory condition” in a local hospital.

The Times-Tribune said police aren’t sure how Burns ended up in the swamp. It’s possible Burns isn’t sure either.
