MANITOWOC, Wisc. (WXYZ) — A massive wave on Lake Michigan knocked a lighthouse into the lake on Monday, and it was all caught on Camera.

Photographer Ann Barbeau caught the final wave that took out the South Pier Lighthouse in Manitowoc, which sits on Lake Michigan southeast of Green Bay.

Manitowoc mayor Justin Nickels tweeted that the Coast Guard has been notified as it is their lighthouse.

According to Fox 11 News, the 20-foot tall fiberglass tower fell into the lake about 8:30 a.m., leaving the concrete base behind.
