Gold Hunters Dive Legendary Shipwreck

Date: 1/7/2014

Treasure hunters returned to the gold-laden SS Central America that sank off South Carolina 160 years ago.
This revives an effort in 1987 by salvage diver Tommy Thompson who
recovered millions from the site before stiffing partners and vanishing.
Odyssey Marine Exploration hope to recover what could be tens of
millions of dollars in gold that went down. Thompson sold salvaged gold
bars and coins to a California mint for $52 million before going on the
lam.
