Century-old shipwreck found in Lake Erie, 8 died in sinking

TOLEDO, Ohio — Shipwreck hunters say they’ve discovered the remains of a steamer that sank in Lake Erie over a century ago and left eight people dead.

The National Museum of the Great Lakes says the wreck is several miles off the Ohio shore near Lorain, about 30 miles (48 kilometres) west of Cleveland.
