Episode Summary

In the fall of 1975, the Great Lakes freighter S.S. Edmund Fitzgerald sailed into a terrifying winter storm, split in two, and vanished. There were no witnesses, no survivors and, decades later, still no answers. Father-and-son diver explorers Mike and Warren Fletcher investigate the lost ship made famous by Gordon Lightfoot’s ballad, “The Wreck of the Edmund Fitzgerald.” Working with naval engineers, meteorologists, and wave experts, the Fletchers uncover clues suggesting that the ships’ sinking was not the fault of the crew, but potentially a rogue wave.moreless
