The Federal St. Laurent apparently ran aground in the St. Lawrence Seaway near the Massena Country Club at approximately 8 p.m. Monday. Grant Wachob said he heard several loud bangs, then heard a commotion on the deck. They called the Border Patrol to notify them of the incident and a Boarder Patrol agent “called back and reported that the Seaway Control stated the ship ran aground,” he said. The cargo ship flies a Barbadous flag and was built in 1996. Photo by Kristina Wachob.
