Has Christopher Columbus' Santa Maria Actually Been Found? What's Next…Finding Nemo?!

Filed under: Wacky, Tacky & TrueGIFs

santa maria found(1)

This could be one of the most important archaeological finds ever, over land or under the sea (excluding Ariel's thingamabobs).

Underwater explorer Barry Clifford discovered a shipwreck back in 2003, eerily close to reports of where Chris Columbus' flagship the Santa Maria ran aground off the coast of Haiti.

However, he believes that archaeologists "misdiagnosed" a cannon found, and that after investigating the types of cannons the Santa Maria had, his ship could very well be one and the same:

Four Dead, Hundreds Of Students Lost At Sea In Devastating South Korean Shipwreck

Filed under: Sad SadEducational

south korea ship sinking dead rescued

Oh no. This is just too horrible.

Four people are reported dead, and hundreds are still missing after a ferry suddenly sank off the coast of South Korea.

The Sewol was taking a local high school class to an island resort when witnesses reported a loud bump. The ship sank less than two hours after making its first distress call, remarkably - and tragically - quickly.

So far, authorities report that 164 people have been rescued, but another 292 are still missing.

Of those onboard, 325 were students from Seoul's Ansan Danwon High School taking a class trip. It's still unclear whether any students were among the four confirmed dead.

Rescue teams are struggling against bad weather, cold temperatures, and low visibility in an effort to find the remaining passengers. Our prayers are with them.

Cruise Ship Runs Aground Off The Coast Of Italy, Three Confirmed Dead

Filed under: Sad Sad

Cruise Ship Italy

This is just horrible, and the pictures are terrifying.

A cruise ship has run aground off the coast of Italy, carrying around 4,000 people. Most people reached land by lifeboats but some swam to shore. At least 50 people haven't been accounted for, and 3 people have been confirmed to have died, 14 people were injured.

Some passengers even said the crew had failed to give instructions on how to evacuate the ship. An evacuation drill was scheduled for Saturday afternoon!

"It was so unorganised, our evacuation drill was scheduled for 17:00 (16:00 GMT). We had joked what if something had happened today."

So, because of that, there was a huge panic. Nobody knew what to do, the elderly were terrified, people were climbing over each other. Some people even jumped into the sea to swim ashore, and they got hypothermia because of it.

Such a terrible thing to happen.

Our question is this: Don't ships with today's technology know how close they are to things?

Not only that, but why don't they do the evacuation drill as the FIRST THING when people finish boarding the ship??

Our hearts go out to those who lost their lives, and we hope those who survived the ordeal can cope with what happened!
