The Mississippi Queen, a replica of the 19th-Century paddle-wheel boats that plied the Mississippi River, ran aground on a sand bar for two hours on Friday, the U.S. Coast Guard said. The river boat, carrying about 400 passengers, lodged on a sand bar at a particularly tricky area in the drought-shrunken Mississippi 50 miles north of Memphis, said Petty Officer Dean Jones, a U.S. Coast Guard spokesman. It was refloated with some assistance about two hours later.
