A sunken houseboat remains in the Mississippi River today, after a Memorial Day accident which sent the boat over Dam number 7 at Dresbach.
Winona County chief deputy Ron Ganrude says the houseboat was headed downriver from Trempealeau, and was waiting to go through the Dresbach dam when the boat's power suddenly failed. They don't know what caused the failure. Eleven people had to be rescued from the river after the boat overturned...but nobody was seriously injured. Ganrude says the group on the boat was renting it for a week.
