“Ship wreck”

The wreck of the S.S. Ethie can be found at Martin's Point. There's a parking area with stairs built down to the rocky beach. Martin's Point is in Gros Morne National Park on The Viking Trail between Sally's Cove and Western Brook Pond. On December 11, 1919, in a violent storm, the Captain intentionally ran the Ethie aground at Martin's Point. The passengers and crew were rescued, with the help of locals that witnessed the grounding, by means of a boson's chair and a rope. A baby was sent ashore in a mail bag. Reporting of the story at the time was sensationalized and included accounts of a heroic dog. All 92 people aboard were rescued with the help of locals and were put up in local homes.
