MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) – Crews are using big machinery to try to free some big machinery from a Twin Cities lake.

An excavator broke through the ice on Penn lake in Bloomington Wednesday morning.

Contractors for the city were trying to dig down to a pump in the lake that keeps the water fresh and moving.

That’s when the excavator broke through.

A crew spent much of the day trying to pull it back out.
