Wrecked steamboat found after 87 years

After 87 years, a wrecked steamboat has been found at the bottom of Lake Vänern in southern Sweden, reports news agency TT.

The steamboat, Nore, sank during a storm back in 1924, and lies at a depth of 35 metres in Sweden’s largest lake, according to a local newspaper, Nya Lidköping.

The vessel was discovered by marine archaeologist Roland Peterson who has been searching for the boat for several years. The discovery was made with the help of sonar equipment.

At the time of its sinking, Nore had ten crew members on board, one of whom died.
