The Maritime History of the Great Lakes
George M. Carl (Propeller), aground, 25 Dec 1975

Full Text

The 10,000 ton freighter GEORGE M. CARL is grounded near the mouth of the Humber River, having missed the entrance to Toronto Harbor by four miles. No one was injured when the 604 foot shipped missed a turn and ran aground last night, but it has more trouble now; Tugs trying to free it fouled a line around the ship's propeller, and a diver will have to go down to cut it loose.
