MARCO ISLAND, Fla - A barge is floating once again after sinking over the weekend.
A damaged dock along Sea Court on Marco Island the site of 17 ton crane collapse early Sunday morning. Neighbors reported hearing a loud bang over night and smelled diesel fuel in the morning.
The Coast Guard says about five gallons made into the waterway which had to be shut down for much of the day.
The barge and crane were doing work on a sea wall in the canal.
Oil booms were deployed to help soak in the fuel.
It appears the barge may have been taking on water overnight causing the crane to slowly tip over. The Coast Guard was quick to point out the enviromental impact of the oil spill is not something to be concerned about.
