The Great Lakes are notorious for keeping their dead, but not their secrets.

The frigid cold waters and freshwater help preserve many of the Great Lakes' wrecks, making it a better adventure for the excited explorer.

The Story Of The SS Daniel J. Morrell

The SS Daneil J. Morrell was a Great Lakes freighter that was constructed in 1906. The ship was used to carry items such as iron ore.

The ship shares a similar story to that of the Edmund Fitzgerald, in the fact she was lost at sea during a strong storm.

The ship snapped in half down the middle, and the survivor of the wreck noted that the stern of the ship still went full steam ahead until the water finally took her down to her watery grave.

Only One Survivor Of 29 Crew Members

Out of the 29 crew members aboard the ship, only one of them made it away, but not unscathed. The sole survivor of the unfortunate sinking was in his boxers, a life jacket, and a pea coat, and was found in a lifeboat with three other crewmembers who succumbed to the elements.

The sole survivor had to undergo numerous surgeries after the event.
