DETROIT, Mich. (WOOD) - A wooden steamer that sunk in Lake Huron in 1910 has been found.
The Steamer New York, which was built in 1897, was discovered by the Undersea Research Associates, according to a Monday news release.
During a journey that started in Detroit and headed north on Lake Huron, the New York and two other boats -- the Steamer Mataafa towing the Waleback Alexander Holley -- were caught in a storm, according to the URA. Strong winds and waves caused the New York to lose power and fall onto its side.
The captain of the Mataafa saw the New York start to sink. He turned his boat around -- nearly causing it to capsize as a load of iron ore shifted -- and returned to the New York to pull the crew of 14 from lifeboats.
No one was killed when the New York sunk.
The URA had been searching for the steamer for years.

It might be December but that is not stopping some people from "hanging 10" in Michigan.
