SOUTH LAKE TAHOE, Calif. (AP) - Witnesses say a three-story yacht that recently sold for $3.2 million sunk in a Lake Tahoe marina.
It's not clear what sent the 86-foot Sierra Rose vessel underwater at the Tahoe Keys Marina by Monday morning, although neighbors report hearing the sound of tearing metal Sunday night.
Witness Heather Contreras tells the Tahoe Daily Tribune more than a dozen people were on the vessel at the time and later left it. She says the boat didn't immediately sink.
The Reno Gazette-Journal reports a big screen TV, leather couches, and floating slices of bread could be seen inside the partially submerged yacht Monday.
The vessel includes three bedrooms, three bathrooms, fireplaces, and a helicopter pad on top.
Calls to county officials and the marina manager were not immediately returned Tuesday.
