No injuries reported after tugboat sinks in Lower Harbor

MARQUETTE — No injuries were reported after a tugboat sank in Lake Superior near Marquette on Friday, according to the U.S. Coast Guard Marquette. Officials said that the crew on the tugboat was attempting to bring the vessel into Marquette’s Lower Harbor to pull it in for the winter. However, the vessel lost power and drifted onto the breakwater, where it was thrashed against the rocks until it sank. Neither of the vessel’s occupants were injured, according to the U.S. Coast Guard.
