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.
