Wheat freighter stuck in Detroit River re-floated
A massive freighter which ran aground in the Detroit River has been pulled out — a day later than expected.
The United States Coast Guard re-floated the “Barbro G,” but it remains anchored in waters stateside.
The bulk carrier was transporting 12,000 tonnes of wheat from Thunder Bay to Italy, but a thruster stopped working Monday morning.
The ship is awaiting inspectors before the vessel can continue its voyage.
