The Bermuda Triangle continues to haunt sea farers when a ship lost 90 years ago along the Bermuda Triangle reappeared recently at the Cuban Coast. The Cuban Coast Guard reported that they have intercepted an abandoned ship that is as antique as Cotopaxi, a tramp steamer that disappeared in December 1925 – and to their horror, it’s documented in its log book that the ship belongs to the same shipping company that owned Cotopaxi.
The Bermuda Triangle or the Devil’s Triangle because of the many disappearance recorded in that area, is a stretch of the Atlantic Ocean that can be traced in a triangle line from Florida to the Bermudas and from the islands of Bermuda to Puerto Rico on the other side then back to Florida as the base of the triangle. It is perceived as mysterious by many but disputed by scientific explainations.
Bermuda Triangle’s name was first used in Vincent H. Gaddis article published in Argosy magazine in 1964. It narrated that during those times, ships as well as planes just vanished and pulled in by the ocean like a vacuum. George X. Sands through Fate magazine also echoed Gaddis’ strange observations but until now despite the advance technology unusual things still happen in the area.
