La Crosse firm recovers boat in Mississippi River fatal accident

LA CROSSE, WI (WTAQ) - A La Crosse company has recovered a towboat that capsized at a lock on the Mississippi River 15 days ago.

Crew member Tyler Trussoni of Genoa was killed in the accident.

It happened when the boat went over a roller gate and overturned at Lock and Dam Number 7 just northwest of La Crosse at Dresbach Minnesota.

Trussoni was trapped in the boat’s compartment during the July 3rd incident. Two other crew members escaped.

They worked for the boat’s owner, Brennan Marine, whose salvage crews set it upright and Wednesday and towed it to the company’s La Crosse shipyard.

The Coast Guard said a week ago it would investigate the cause of the accident. Brennan and local authorities blamed it on mechanical failures, a strong river current, and high water.
