DEEP SEA DETECTIVES: The Ghost Ship of New England

On a bleak Thanksgiving weekend in 1898, a trio of tempests engulfed New England, sank hundreds of ships, and killed more than 400 people.

The disappearance of the passenger steamer SS Portland that weekend remains one of New England's worst maritime disasters.

In July 2002, marine archaeologists zeroed in on the paddle wheeler's location, and the dramatic story of the nearly 200 people trapped onboard can finally be told.

Features ROV video of the wreck and interviews with victims' descendants.
