Protester Climbs In Oil Pipe

MARSHALL, Mich. (WLNS)- A protester has climbed into an oil pipeline at an Enbridge construction site near Marshall and emergency crews are working to get him out.

The Battle Creek Enquirer reports the man is 25 yards inside the opening of the line. There is reportedly air being pushed in toward him, so officials are monitoring carbon monoxide levels at the scene.

The protesters are pushing to stop construction of a new pipeline by Enbridge Inc.. They believe that it endangers public health. This after a pipeline rupture back in 2010 that was responsible for spilling more than 800,000 gallons of oil into an area river.
