A crane operator was able to escape severe injury after his machine tipped over at a St. Clair Shores marina.

The accident happed at the Island Harbor Marina along Jefferson Ave., just north of 9 Mile Road Friday morning.

Police say a woman ended up in the water got to shore on her own and rescue crews got the man out of the crane's cab.

He suffered minor injuries to his ankle and was taken a local hospital for treatment.
