Luxury houseboat sinks at marina

An 86-foot, three-story $3.2 million houseboat, complete with three staterooms and a helicopter pad, sank early Monday morning at a Lake Tahoe marina.

The Sierra Rose sat partially submerged at its Tahoe Keys Marina dock in South Lake Tahoe, Calif., according to the Associated Press.

It’s not clear what sent the houseboat underwater at the marina Monday morning, but witnesses said they heard screeching, the sound of tearing metal and a passenger shout “Oh, no!” late Sunday night.
