No one was injured when a forklift toppled over into Greenwich Harbor Thursday morning.

At about 8:10am local police, fire, and EMS were dispatched to a construction site at 702 Steamboat Road on a report that a seawall had given way and a forklift had fallen into Greenwich Harbor.

Police say the operator of the forklift was shaken up, and wet, after being helped out of the water by co-workers, but escaped serious injury.

Part of the seawall located to the rear of the property appeared to have collapsed causing the forklift to roll over into the water.

The construction under way at 702 Steamboat Rd is luxury condos that replaced Sundial Apartments, which were demolished in October 2017.
