Sunken Barge

14 Aug

Some of you may recall my post on March 26 regarding a partially sunken barge on the bank of the Mississippi River.


The river is at near record lows, and someone finally came and salvaged the barge.





They came in with torches and cut the barge up into smaller, more manageable pieces. Then they used this trackhoe with a grappling claw on the bucket to pick up the pieces and load them onto trucks to be hauled away for salvage. I knew with the prices of metal today the barge would not stay there to go to waste.
