A half sunken RV now sits in the Erie Canal after a boat launch went terribly wrong Sunday morning at the Monroe/Orleans County Line Road Boat Launch.

The camper was pulled into the canal while trying to launch a boat that was just purchased yesterday, according to a witness.

The Brockport Fire Department and Monroe County Sheriffs responded to the incident. No one was injured.
