USS Indianapolis Wreckage Found

Wreckage from a World War Two ship that has been missing since 1945 has been discovered.  A team led by  Microsoft co-founder Paul Allen discovered the wreckage of the USS Indianapolis Friday more than 18-thousand feet below the sea.  The heavy  cruiser was carrying nearly 12-hundred sailors and Marines when it was  torpedoed by a Japanese submarine. While most of the crew survived the  sinking, only 316 crewmen were rescued after spending five days in the  water.  Most died of exposure, drowning and shark attacks.
