A boat that is required to be on hand for a possible rescue of construction workers on the Interstate 74 Bridge partially sank Friday in the spot where it was tied off in Bettendorf.

Bettendorf firefighters and police were called to the 12th Street boat ramp at Leach Park shortly after noon Friday to make sure no one was aboard the vessel when it went down.

Firefighter Nick Jensen said no one was on the craft, and workers from the bridge fetched a crane to haul it out.
