trampoline in the water

South Haven Department of Public Works employees earlier this week prepare to haul a trampoline to shore after high winds blew it into the Black River.

SOUTH HAVEN — South Haven Department of Public Works staff found themselves fishing a trampoline out of the Black River earlier this week after several small boats became entangled by it.

City staff became aware of the issue when anglers from the South Haven Steelheaders reported that the object was a large trampoline with an attached safety cage. It was lurking about 2 feet below the river’s surface.
