Salvage Crew Discovers Sunken Sub Off OC

4814

A submarine that once sailed to Pearl Harbor has been located by a salvage team off the coast of Ocean City.


Atlantic Wreck Salvage says side-scan sonar located the R-8, which was one of about two-dozen submarines commissioned by the Navy during World War One.

The submarine was sent to the bottom of the ocean during aerial bombing testing in the 1930s.

A dive team will be sent to further document the discovery.
