Authorities in Cuba have found a ship for the first time since May 16th, near a military zone, west of the Cuban capital, Havana.
When patrol boats reached the wreckage, they were shocked to see it was a 100-year old steamer boat named the Cotopaxi, a famous name associated with the Bermuda Triangle legend. Apparently, there were nobody even on board and was left abandoned for many decades, which lead Cuban officials to find that this was a tramp freighter that was lost in 1925.
It was associated with the Clinchfield Navigation Company, who were owners of the Cotopaxi, but hasn’t given a clue concerning the ships last 90 years.
On November 29th, 1925, the SS Cotopaxi left from Charleston, South Carolina, and was on its way to Havana, Cuba.
The ship had 32 men on board, who were under the command of Captain W. J. Meyer, that was carrying a cargo filled with 2340 tons of coal. It was only about 2 days later that it was reported missing and left unheard of for over 90 years.
