El Faro Wreck Video and Still Photos from Bottom

Just released still photos and video showing the El Faro wreck on the bottom.

As the video shows, the wreck is a big mess, with much twisted metal seen. A sinking ship that falls 15,000 feet can break apart violently.

Here is the link. Make sure to watch the short video.

Ahoy All Sailors! I love traditional sailboats of all kinds (e.g. gaff rigged, schooners, cutters, smacks, woodies, etc.). See my CF Profile "About Me" page for details.

Thanks. Clicked "Play" just as radio started playing "Five Variants of Dives and Lazarus" by Vaughn Williams. Amazing coincidence. Very touching.
