Watch: WWI German Submarine Discovered Off the Coast of Belgium
Divers swimming off the coast of Belgium found the wreckage of a WWI-era relic—a sunken German submarine. The U-boat, found 30 metres below the surface, was likely disabled by a mine. All 23 members of its crew are presumed to still be inside. 11 other sunken German ships have been found in the area, but this is among the best preserved.
