Tug Dale White Holed

The tugboat Dale White struck an object in the Chicago Sanitary and Ship Canal near Willow Springs, Illinois.  The tugboat began to fill with water and became stuck in the canal.   The vessel did settle to the bottom of the shallow section of the canal, but did not sink.  All six crew men were uninjured.   An empty barge was attached to the tug with no damage reported.   No pollution was released.
