The ship contains $10-million worth of treasure.
Sunken Treasure found!
A 334-year-old shipwreck has been discovered in Britain and the ship is said to have $10-million worth of treasure on it.
Story goes that the merchant ship President was on its way back from India when it sank back in 1684. It was fully loaded with diamonds and pearls worth millions in today’s money. The crew had battled pirates and near starvation on their trip, but unfortunately all but two died when a storm ripped through the ship and sank her off the coast of Porthleven, Cornwall, England.
Fragments of the ship were first spotted around 20-years- ago. Thanks to more recent storms, larger parts of the vessel have been revealed. Archaeology diver David Gibbins notes he and his partner Mark Milburn have been watching over the site for a while now. He says, “For years it’s been covered by sand. We’re thrilled with the finds.”
Though they have found parts of the ship, they’ve yet to get a hold of that treasure. Mark notes, “The diamonds and pearls were never recovered. They’re down there somewhere.”

Skinny Dipping world record is set!
Organizers of an annual skinny dipping event in Ireland announced this year's dip involved a record-breaking 2,505 naked women taking a swim.
The Strip and Dip, an annual event at Magheramore beach in County Wicklow, broke a Guinness World Record on Saturday when 2,505 women shed their clothes and spent at least 5 minutes in the chilly water.
Organizers said they bested the previous world record for a mass skinny dip, which was set three years ago in Western Australia, where 786 nude bathers took the plunge.
The event raised more than $342,000 for cancer charity Aoibheann's Pink Tie.
