Another attempt to remove mystery object planned

WESTERLY, R.I. (WPRI) — Workers will make another attempt this week to pull up a mysterious object that’s been sitting off East Beach in Westerly.

Peter Brockmann, president of the East Beach Association, told Eyewitness News Tuesday that a crew will try to pull the eight-legged metallic object out of the sand at 10 a.m. Thursday.

At least two previous attempts to remove the object were canceled, largely because of the weather.

Of note, an offshore storm is expected to kick up the surf Wednesday into Thursday.
