The Bermuda Triangle is one of the few things on earth that still remains a mystery. Several unexplainable incidents have taken place at the Bermuda Triangle. The recent mystery of the lost ship that reappeared after 90 years is also one of them. Thecargo ship SS Cotopaxi, built in 1918, was launched only a short time later. In 1925, it disappeared without a trace in the notorious Bermuda Triangle. After more than 90 years, the ship suddenly reappeared.
Mystery of the ship
In 2015, a ship reportedly resurfaced after sinking a few days after leaving Charleston Harbour in South Carolina (USA) with 32 people on board, over 90 years ago. The ship was on its way to Havana, Cuba, loaded with coal and disappeared due to unknown reasons. However, in 2015 the same ship was sighted again, 90 years after its disappearance. Anyone has yet to explain the theory behind this mystery.
Template for a film
The case of the SS Cotopaxi became so interesting because Steven Spielberg made this disappearance the subject of one of his films: The 1977 masterpiece Close Encounters of the Third Kind.
In 2015, when it was said to have suddenly drifted into a restricted military area, the ship was investigated and a captain's log would have confirmed the ship's identity as the SS Cotopaxi.
The Bermuda Triangle
However, this is not the first time a mystery like this was connected to the Bermuda Triangle. Flight 19 with five fighter planes also disappeared there in 1945. The plane that was sent to search for them suffered the same fate. Such events have created the mystery around this particular area.
There are many sceptics and no official sources have confirmed the mystery of the SS Cotopaxi. But the fact that, the cargo ship SS Cotopaxi existed and that it disappeared is confirmed by American media dating back to 1925.
All just a hoax?
But the mysterious appearance of the cargo ship is said to be fabricated. According to the Associated PressandThe Washington Post, the Cuban authorities denied the appearance of the fleet in 2017. As the French newspaper Le Monde reports, this would not be the only misinformation circulating on the internet.
The story had appeared on a website called Klixony, claiming that the Cuban coast had discovered this ship. However, they denied this two years later
