20 Tons Of Machinery Pulled Out Of A Local Lake

  Early Monday, it was still stuck in the mud, halfway underwater, just like it's been for the last few weeks. The Track hoe was being operated on the banks of Lake Palestine, in mid-January. It got stuck in the mud and a decision was made to leave it for the weekend. Unfortunately, that was a weekend when it rained, and rained.
  Monday morning you could only see the top half of the bright yellow machine, sticking out of the lake. A local construction company sent a diver to try and figure out the best way to get it out. They hooked up cables and after several failed attempts, finally pulled it onto dry ground.
