Small riverboat stuck on sandbar in western Kentucky lake

CADIZ, Ky. (AP) — A riverboat cruising between Memphis and Nashville has become stuck on a sandbar in Lake Barkley. American Cruise Lines says the modern riverboat American Jazz was being assisted off the sandbar Thursday. The company says the small boat has not been damaged. The U.S. Coast Guard says the boat was carrying 120 passengers and 54 crew members. The agency says it sent a boat crew and marine investigator to the scene near Canton, Kentucky. The Coast Guard says it is working with the company to figure out how to dislodge the boat. The boat was on a seven-night cruise, which is expected to continue with a few schedule adjustments.
