Shortly before I got to Chicago, I had heard that one of the barges on the river had sunk. Apparently, there was a loud crack from the barge and it folded up before sinking. One end of the barge was left still sticking out of the water and I couldn’t resist a quick walk across to see how it had ended up. I have no idea what progress has been made salvaging it so if anyone knows, please add a comment letting me know the final outcome. Thanks.
