Salvage is now complete for the tug boat stuck off the coast of Lake Michigan.

The Kimberly Selvick started taking on water Monday afternoon after having mechanical problems.

It became partially submerged while trying to retrieve two barges that broke free during a tow

It's now moored at the Calumet River Slip, where it'll stay until it can enter the dry dock for repairs on Wednesday.
