Tourist No. 2

The Tourist No. 2 capsized off the riverfront on Thursday.

The historic Tourist No. 2, a former Columbia River ferry built in the 1920s, capsized at a dock near downtown Thursday.

Good Samaritan boats arrived to try to help contain some of the fuel that spilled from the vessel as the smell of diesel filled the air. An orange containment boom was placed around the ferry later that day with oil spill cleanup beginning Friday.
