A tourist couple from Canada diving in Wassaw Sound (A small Bay located on the shores of Georgia) and made a surprising discovery. Jason Sutter and Christina Murray had admired the marine life and stumbled upon the atom bomb which had been lost by the Air Force of United states more then 50 years ago.
This couple were from London in Ontario and came in Georgia and Florida for two week vacation to practice their favorite hobby which is scuba diving. When they ready for dive near the shores of Island. While admiring the plants and fishes near the sea, they seen a large cylindrical Thing partially covered by sand. They investigated the object carefully and seen that it was a sort of bomb or missile, That's why they decided to contact with the authorities.
Mr. Jason Sutter said that:
I noticed an object that looked like a metal cylinder, which I thought was an oil barrel. When I dug it up a bit, I noticed that it was actually a lot bigger and that there was some writing on the side. When I saw the inscription saying that it was a Mk-15 nuclear bomb, I totally freaked out. I caught Chritina by the arm and made signs to tell her we had to leave. We made an emergency ascent, went back to shore and then we called 911.
|The couple was still shocked after the discovery of this and said that they will avoid diving for some time|
The recovery operation completed in more than 48 hours and the bomb was finally recovered and transported to the Mayport Naval Station which is in Florida. The series of tests and analysis will be performed on the Bomb to know its actual state.
The Federal authorities of the state were said that that is a nuclear bomb that had been lost in 1950′s and had never been recovered and no efforts had been done to recover it for many years. When a B-47 Stratojet bomber carrying the 7,600-pound hydrogen bomb on a simulated combat mission off the coast of Georgia collided with an F-86 Saberjet fighter at 36,000 feet of altitude at the night of February 5, 1958. The collision destroyed the fighter and severely damaged the wing of the bomber, leaving one of its engines partially destroyed.
