Wednesday, February 26, 2014
CORNWALL, ENGLAND—A German ship that sank off the southern coast of England during World War I has been revealed by heavy storms that have washed away tons of sand from the beach. The SV Carl “was a sailing ship that was being towed to London and broke its tow. The majority of the ship was salvaged and this is all that is left which is remarkably good condition from being under the sand all these years,” film maker Crispin Sadler told the Cornish Guardian.
