Boat trapped at Niagara Falls for 100 years dislodged

(CNN) — A massive ship stuck at the top of Niagara Falls for 100 years has shifted.

The flat-bottomed iron scow has been grounded since 1918 when it broke loose from a tugboat.

Park officials say heavy rains and fierce winds on Halloween night flipped the iron vessel on to its side and spun it down river about 150 feet. Park officials say right now it looks secure, and that there isn’t a danger of the wreckage going over the falls. 

However, they don’t expect it to remain stationary forever and will continue to watch it closely for any sign of movement.
