8-Year-Old and Mom Stumble Upon 1700s Shipwreck

It’s a ghost ship mystery! This vessel was found by a mom and her son who were looking for seashells. What they found instead was a shipwreck dating as far back as 300 years.

It washed ashore at Ponte Vedra Beach outside Jacksonville, Florida. Julie Turner and her 8-year-old son Patrick made the breathtaking discovery after a 5 minute stroll from their home.

The vessel measures 48 feet in length, and the original wooden pegs were still intact.
