  1. Scomething tell's me they could just lift this thing up with a chinook or 2. It's not stuck, it's abandoned and now a land mark.

  2. Soo….who's gonna own the boat when it falls? Im sure museums want it. Who's willing to pay for it? How much? and Who is it paid to?

  3. “Gives you a sense of the power of the river here”….uhhh the river hasnt moved it for 101yrs 🧐. Aint that powerful

  5. With that orientation it can catch ice flows pretty easily if any form this winter. Fair chance it will come loose. Don't know what danger it poses.

  6. Thanks for having a segment that has nothing to do with Trump for a change .
    CNN should take notes from your playbook .

  7. They emergency rescued the two men? Seems like they could’ve taken their time given they had over 100yrs before the boat would actually move.

  8. I saw that barge in 1969 when visiting NF. I asked a person who had been vacationing this summer in Canada & I was very surprised to hear it was still there.

  9. I remember that boat it was there when I went there in my youth. That's over 40 yrs ago. The Canadian side is or was so much better than the American side back then.

  10. This is an omen! Just as it is written in the Loonar Profacies, “when ure sails fails and yer balls falls, you shall never save 15% on your insurance again”. 😳It’s apocalyptic. 😱

  11. Im pretty sure every single person wants to see it go over the falls. Sell admission tickets and broadcast it or something to make money if you want… just make it happen.

  12. see fake news why did you show a flooded underpass on the west side of buffalo ny when that s in niagra falls twenty miles away no fact cheaking its a barge not a boat lmfao

  13. does anyone care? i mean like literally anyone? please nbc can you just point me in the direction of anyone that says yes i care… out of everything in the world going on how can this even make it to a top 100 story lol

  14. Omg. It’s so hard finding real news like this. No really. They dident even mention trump and it almost made me smile.

  15. Loose? It literally became perpendicular to the flow of water like an umbrella opening in a wind tunnel, and it's still not moving 😂 That's going to be there for a while. Maybe a glacier from the next ice age will push it down.

  16. global warming caused the boat to dislodge itself…we dont have much time left greta thunberg warned us of this and we just laughed in her face. This is all Orange Mans fault!

  17. A rusty, deserted, 100 year old boat lasted this long against running rapids? Mother Nature may have eventually won but she's lost her fastball…

  18. It is like the Economy! LOL, the Ship keeps sinking, and yet it is at the pleasure of those who see it as an Icon!
