Wreckage of El Faro cargo ship found
November 1 , 2015
The US Navy has found what is believed to be the wreckage of the El Faro cargo ship some 15,000 feet under water, the National Transportation Safety Board has said.
El Faro went missing on October 1 during Hurricane Joaquin. It had 33 people on board, including 28 Americans and five Polish nationals. All are presumed dead.
“The target identified…is consistent with a 790-foot cargo ship, which from sonar images appears to be in an upright position and in one piece,” the NTSB said.
