Workers will make an attempt to remove a "mystery object" from the ocean floor in Westerly on Thursday morning.

The head of the East Beach Association says a crew will begin excavating the object at low tide with the hope of removing it intact.

A previous attempt to remove it was scrubbed because of bad weather.

The strange metal object with legs was found underwater off the shore of East Beach. The object is too heavy to move by hand.

No one seems to know what it is, how deep it's buried or how it got there.
