GRAND HAVEN, Mich. — Crews worked for several hours Monday to remove two pieces of construction equipment that got stuck in Lake Michigan.

The equipment was stuck in the water at Grand Haven State Park.

Grand Haven Public Safety officials tell FOX 17 that a bulldozer got stuck around 1 p.m. while the driver was trying to remove a tree trunk from the water.  An excavator that was being used to remove the bulldozer also got stuck.

The bulldozer was removed from the water at about 4 p.m. The second piece of equipment was removed at about 6:15 p.m.

There was a small oil leak from the bulldozer, but police said that it was contained.

Police say it’s up to the state to decide when the section of the beach will reopen.  No injuries were reported.
