"Great Lakes Triangle" strikes again

Some of you may not know it, but there is a "Great Lakes Triangle" into which more planes and boats have disappeared than the famed "Bermuda Triangle". And according to this report, it has happened again:

MARBLEHEAD, Ohio -- The U.S. Coast Guard is helping to search for a missing barge on Lake Erie Tuesday.

The garbage barge was being towed by a tugboat when it came lose somewhere between Sandusky and Cleveland.

The crew does not know where it was lost. The tug Kurt R. Luedtke backtracked its original path, did not locate the barge. A Coast Guard Station Marblehead 47-foot utility boat is assisting the tug to find the garbage barge.

Ummmmmmmm...OK.........how do you "lose" a barge that you're towing, and not have any idea when it happened? Doesn't somebody look back there once in a while to make sure what you're towing is still following you?
