Civilian researchers claim they have uncovered the wreckage of the USS Indianapolis, a World War II cruiser.
A Japanese submarine torpedoed the USS Indianapolis early in the morning of July 30, 1945, according to the Navy. Approximately 800 of the 1,196 sailors and Marines survived the ship's initial sinking. But the Navy said only 316 people survived the dehydration, drowning, and shark attacks that ensued over the subsequent four to five days they spent stuck in the water.
