Scatarie Lighthouse

On September 20, 2011, the MV Miner, a former Great Lakes shipping vessel, broke free of its towing line in rough seas and ran aground on Scatarie Island. The ship was being towed by a tug to Aliaga, Turkey, where she was to be scrapped. Immediate efforts to free the vessel were unsuccessful, and it wasn't until just before the one year anniversary of the stranding that New York-based Bennington Group arrived on the island to cut up and remove the wreckage.
