Cruise Ship Crashes Into Wall
( 4UMF NEWS ) Cruise Ship Crashes Into Wall:
A cruise ship struck a wall in the Eisenhower Lock in upstate New York on Thursday night, the U.S. Coast Guard said, injuring some passengers.
Michael Lecuyer, with St. Lawrence County Emergency Services, told CNN that 17 people suffered very minor injuries.
CNN affiliate WWNY said the 17 injured, accompanied by 13 of their relatives, were taken off the ship, the Saint Laurent, to be checked out at a local hospital. All were treated and discharged before being brought back to the ship early Friday.
There were 274 people, including passengers and crew, aboard the 286-foot cruise ship when it hit the lock wall in the Saint Lawrence Seaway in Massena, New York, the Coast Guard said in a news release Thursday.
As of 6 a.m. ET Friday, the cruise ship remained in the lock and all the passengers are still on board, Lecuyer said.
Inspectors will assess the damage during the morning and determine if and when the ship will be able to leave, he added.
A Coast Guard boat was deployed to the scene late Thursday from Alexandria Bay, New York. The ship will remain in the lock with both doors closed until it can be moved to different location, the Coast Guard said.
The cause of the collision is still being investigated.
The Saint Lawrence Seaway extends more than 2,000 miles from the Atlantic Ocean to the head of the Great Lakes.
The Eisenhower Lock is one of two U.S. locks on the 10-mile-long Wiley-Dondero Canal, which provides access to Lake St. Lawrence.
