A tugboat sank Saturday morning at the new construction site of the Eggners Ferry Bridge in Marshall County, Kentucky.

This is according to Keith Todd, with the Kentucky Transportation Cabinet. 

He says the boat was being used with the construction of the new bridge. It took on some water and then sank. 

Todd says the coast guard is planning on using a crane that is used with the construction to get the boat out either Saturday or Sunday.

No injuries were reported.
