WWII-era ship overturns in Lake Erie in Buffalo, New York, marine park | CNN



A World War II naval destroyer on display at the Buffalo and Erie County Naval & Military Park partially sinks into Lake Erie, according to the facility.

A statement from the park says “a serious hull fracture” occurred on the USS The Sullivans on Wednesday.

Paul Marzello, the president and CEO of the marine park, told CNN affiliate WKBW the cause of the breach is under investigation and crews both in the water and on deck are trying to identify where the holes could be.

According to Marzello, the ship will not sink completely, as the lake is only about five feet deep.

The breach is on the starboard side of the ship, according to Marzello.
