The Coast Guard continues to oversee salvage efforts of the partially submerged towing vessel “Kimberly Selvick” in Lake Michigan this afternoon off of Burnham Park, Illinois. The towing vessel began taking on water and became partially submerged while trying to retrieve two barges that broke free during a tow Monday afternoon. A crane barge and other equipment are on scene to remove diesel fuel from the vessel and once completed, the vessel will be dewatered and refloated.
