In 1918, an iron scow became lodged in the Niagara river that runs between

The iron scow originally broke free from a dredging operation above the
Falls in 1918. The two workers on the scow at the time opened the bottom
dumping doors to flood the scow with water and sink it into the rocks in the
rapids above the Horseshoe Falls on the Canadian side. The men were rescued
and the scow remained in place in the rapids for over 100 years. It broke
free during a severe storm in October 2019 and moved closer to the edge of
the Falls before getting stuck in the rapids once again. It was originally
about a third of a mile (0.5 km) from the brink of Horseshoe Falls. Then it
moved about 164 feet (150 meters) downstream and became lodged again, and
there it remains.
