Work begins to recover two sunken Ohio River barges

Work is underway to recover two sunken barges in the Ohio River.

River Salvage started working early Thursday morning to bring up the iron ore barges that sank on Friday.

The barge company expects it to take a week or more to bring up the sunken barges.  Friday's sunken barges were the first of three barge accidents on the river in the past week.
