Dredging Drowned Bicycles From Amsterdam Canals

There are an estimated 800,000 bicycles in Amsterdam. How many of these end up at the bottom of a canal? Hundreds, many of which are vintage. A  giant claw machine perched atop a barge dredges them up from canal floors.

Not only bikes but shopping carts, wagons, and even an occasional car are fished out.
