Five high school students, along with an expedition leader, find two shipwrecks in Lake Huron

Five high school students from Saginaw were lucky enough to spend part of their summer looking for shipwrecks in Lake Huron. And, they found, not just one shipwreck... but two: the M.F. Merrick and the Etruria. Both ships are over 100 years old. The students found the ships through the program, "Project Shiphunt" along with their team leader Dr. James Delgado, a marine archeologist with the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Association.
