Lake Huron Shipwreck Found, Dates Back to 1913

A shipwreck hunter says he found a wreck in Lake Huron that could date back to more than 100 years ago.

David Trotter, a shipwreck hunter from downstate, said he and his crew believe they have found the Hydrus. They say the Hydrus went down during a major storm in 1913.

Trotter said they found the shipwreck more than 30 miles from land, but he is not saying exactly where until he and his team investigate further.

The ship, which was hauling iron ore at the time of its demise, was one of several that went down in the 1913 storm. The wreck killed all 22 crew members on board.
