CAPE CORAL, Fla. -- Salvage crews are working to remove an abandoned sunken boat from a Cape Coral boat ramp.

It's happening at Rosen Park boat ramp on SE 15th Terrace.

Crews expect the boat to be gone sometime Monday.

City officials tell Fox 4 that the boat was left near the ramp on Friday, and by Saturday it had sunk, leaving a ring of oil and gasoline in the water.

The owner will have to pay for the cost of the removal.
