The Little Boat that Could
In a series of shocking events, a Towboat churning down the Tombigbee River collided into the Old Rooster Bridge near Demopolis, Alabama on April 28 of 1979. Surprisingly, the boat somehow managed to pass under the bridge with the help of the particularly strong currents during that time of the year and come up on the other side. Even more surprisingly, there was someone with a camera at the right place and at the right time to capture the event.
The Old Rooster Bridge was destroyed in the early 1980’s and replaced by a newer bridge up the river, but the local legend of the unsinkable towboat lives on!
