Flamingo

Shortly before it sank, the Italian ship was armed with two torpedoes on its fore end. Built as early as 1889, it sank in 1914 after hitting one of its own mines. Captain J.O.Krieg managed to send up a distress flare and launch a lifeboat. Due to strong winds and high waves, the lifeboat was soon destroyed, leaving the crew to struggle against the sea and the storm. Today Flamingo resides in the silence of the sea depths, and its loyal visitors, apart from divers, are a multitude of fish and crabs.
