First glimpse inside a sunken cargo ship: 400ft anchor chain slices through the Golden Ray to reveal 4,200 Hyundai cars not seen since the vessel capsized last September off Brunswick, Georgia
  • The Golden Ray capsized near the Port of Brunswick in September 2019, with 4,000 cars onboard
  • Engineers are finally demolishing the boat, using an anchor chain to saw it into eight sections
  • A giant floating crane is lifting up parts of the dismantled ship before they will be taken to Gulf coast

really surprised they decided to break the ship in the water since it capsized due to improper loading rather than hull damage. I figured they would've rigged up some sort of massive airbag under the sea floor side of the ship and hooked tugs to the top of it and tried to right it and pump the water out of the ship into container tanks to clean it
 

whatever
