Bermuda Triangle: Ship Reappears 90 Years After Going Missing

Havana| The Cuban Coast Guard reported this morning, that that they had intercepted an unmanned ship heading for the island, that is likely to be the SS Cotopaxi, a tramp steamer that vanished in December 1925 and has since been connected to the legend of the Bermuda Triangle.

The Cuban authorities noticed the ship for the first time on May 16, close to a restricted military zone, west of Havana,capital city of Cuba. They created several unsuccessful attempts to speak with the crew, and at last mobilized 3 patrol boats to intercept it.

When they reached it, they were shocked to find that the ship was really an almost 100-year old steamer knownas the Cotopaxi, a reputation famously related to the legend of the Bermuda Triangle. There was nobody on board and also the ship appeared to be abandoned for many years, suggesting that this might really be the tramp freighter that disappeared in 1925.

An complete search of the ship led to the discovery of the captain’s book. It was, indeed, related to the Clinchfield Navigation Company, the owners of the SS Cotopaxi, however hasn’t brought any clue regarding what happened to the ship over the last 90 years.

Cuban expert, Rodolfo Salvador Cruz, believes that the captain’s logbook is authentic. This document is full of precious information concerning the life of the crew before the ship’s disappearance, but the entries stop suddenly on December 1, 1925.

On 29 November 1925, the SS Cotopaxi departed Charleston, South Carolina, and headed towards Havana, Cuba. The ship had a crew of 32 men, under the command of Captain W. J. Meyer, and was carrying a cargo of 2340 tons of coal. It was reported missing two days later, and was unheard of for almost 90 years.

The Vice President of Council of Ministers, General Abelardo Colomé, announced that the Cuban authorities were going to conduct a thorough investigation to elucidate the mystery of the ship’s disappearance and reappearance.

“It is very important for us to understand what happened” says General Colomé. “Such incidents could be really bad for our economy, so want to make sure that this kind of disappearance doesn’t happen again. The time has come to solve the mystery of the Bermuda Triangle, once and for all.”
The Bermuda Triangle, also known as the Devil’s Triangle, is a loosely-defined region in the western part of the North Atlantic Ocean, where a number of aircraft and ships are said to have disappeared under mysterious circumstances.
Popular culture has attributed many of the disappearances to paranormal and supernatural phenomena, or to the activity of extraterrestrial beings.

One explanation, even pins the blame on leftover technology from the mythical lost continent of Atlantis.

Popular culture has attributed many of the disappearances to paranormal and supernatural phenomena, or to the activity of extraterrestrial beings.

Despite the popularity of all these strange theories, most scientists don’t even recognize the existence of the Bermuda Triangle, and blame human mistakes and natural phenomena for the disappearances.

The mysterious reappearance of the SS Cotopaxi has, however, already generated a lot of interest in the scientific community and could push some experts to change their mind on the subject.
