First Photos Emerge of Cargo Ship That Sank Last Year in Hurricane


The haunting remains of a cargo ship that sank last year in the Bermuda Triangle during a deadly Category 4 hurricane were publicly seen Sunday for the first time, in images released by the federal National Transportation Safety Board.

The damaged stern of sunken freighter El Faro was discovered 15,000 feet deep in the Atlantic Ocean, where the Puerto Rico-bound ship foundered in the face of 50-foot waves during Hurricane Joaquin on Oct. 1, 2015.

Investigators from the NTSB were not able to find any of the 33 crew members, including a 26-year-old Brooklyn man, who went down with the ship.

“There were no human remains found whatsoever, and no personal effects whatsoever,” said Tom Roth-Roffy, the lead investigator. “I think we found one boot.”

The images of the shipwreck show a breach in El Faro’s hull and its main navigation tower missing.
