'Pegasus' drops explosives overboard north of Juneau

A 60-foot landing craft called Pegasus — with 47,000 pounds of explosives on board — capsized and ran aground today off Sunshine Cove, about 20 miles north of Juneau. Coast Guard Petty Officer Brandon Cervantes says the accident caused two containers of explosives to fall into the sea. The vessel is now sitting off Sunshine Cove in 50 feet of water, mostly underwater but with the bow sticking above the surface.
