ST. CLAIR SHORES, Mich. (WJBK) -

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.

St Clair Shores Fire Department Battalion Chief Walt Jenuwine says the crane tipped while it was transferring a heavy piece of machinery from a truck onto a boat. The wheels stayed on land, but the top was partially submerged in a Lake St. Clair canal.

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.

The Michigan Occupational Safety and Health Administration is expected to investigate.

    It's a running joke that if you mention the Eugene O'Neill Theater Center to nearly anyone in Hollywood they're going to know exactly what you're talking about because odds are they might have gotten their first big break there. Would you believe some Hollywood's biggest stars -- Meryl Streep, Michael Douglas, Angela Bassett -- got their start in a big red barn in the middle of nowhere.
