Full Text

The fule lighter BLACK DIAMOND, owned by the Great Lakes Transit Corp. struck a submerged object yesterday in the channel between the Superior and Dellwood elevators, puncturing her hull, causing a leak that resulted in her settling on the bottom.
The tug TENNESSEE, comanded by Capt. Willima Quirk, went to the assitance of the BLACK DIAMOND and did some pumping, but this and the pumps of the sunken boat would not control the water. Her decks were awash yesterday afternoon, but she is not obstructing navigation in the channel.
