Ship That Vanished In The Bermuda Triangle Almost 100 Years Ago Discovered By Explorers
The Bermuda Triangle was one of the most dreaded locations in the Western part of the North Atlantic Ocean known as Devil’s Alley. The mystery of the Triangle bounded by Florida, Bermuda and Puerto Rico is well known where dozens of ships and airplanes disappeared without a trace. The triangle is once again the news where a ship that once disappeared in the Bermuda Triangle almost 100 years was suddenly discovered a few days ago. Can you believe that?
1The SS Cotopaxi disappeared 100 years ago
SS Cotopaxi disappeared mysteriously in the Bermuda Triangle 100 years ago. As strange as it sounds, the ship has suddenly been found by sea explorers. The merchant ship that vanished in the triangle in 1925 was found by a team of experts just 35 nautical miles off the Coast of St Augustine in Florida. The discovery is going to be aired on a new Science Channel series called Shipwreck Secrets to premier on 9th Feb.
2It was another mystery of the Bermuda Triangle
The Cotopaxi was a real mystery. The steamship left Charleston SC for Havana on November 29th, 1925 but she never reached her destination. Assumed to have sunk, even the 32 passenger’s bodies were never recovered. The disappearance became one of the most famous stories associated with the deadly legend of the Bermuda Triangle.
3The man responsible for the discovery
The man responsible for finding the ship was marine biologist and underwater explorer Michael Barnette who was assisted by Guy Walters a British Historian. Together they combed through records found in the archives of Lloyds of London who were the ship’s insurance brokers. Barnett’s search paid off where he found something that was not known by anyone in regards to the ship’s doomed voyage. What Barnette found was that the Cotopaxi had sent out several distress signals along with their location on 1st December 1925. That was just two days after it has set sail from the port at Charleston, South Carolina.
