A barge carrying a crane has partially sunk off Coney Island.

The Coast Guard received the report at around 1 a.m. Saturday.

The large crane was being used to fix hurricane damage to the pier.

The crane carries about 500 gallons diesel fuel.

Authorities used floating barriers in case of a gas leak.

The Coast Guard says it's up to the barge owner to secure and fix it.
