Heavy rains, wind dislodge boat stuck above Niagara Falls for over 100 years

CANADA -

Heavy rains and wind managed to dislodge an old iron boat stuck on the rocks of Niagara Falls for over a century.

The so-called "Niagara scow" has been rusting at the spot since 1918.

Severe storms Halloween night removed the boat and sent it 150 feet down the river.

Officials are concerned the vessel could tumble over the falls.

The 80-foot boat has been a popular tourist attraction for decades.
