Jan 30, 2013 -- 3:47am

The Coast Guard responded Tuesday to an overturned crane in Absecon Bay in New Jersey that leaked approximately 50 gallons of hydraulic fluid before it was secured.

The crane operator was taken to a local hospital for a possible head injury.

While loading the fishing boat Michael Junior, the crane car toppled over and spilled the hydraulic fluid. A local environmental control team remains on the scene today; yesterday the team deployed two small sections of containment boom to prevent the hydraulic fluid from spreading.

A boatcrew from Coast Guard Station Atlantic City is on the scene monitoring the situation.
