Abandoned ship found in Ireland, Tik Tok video shows fascinating interior
Abandoned ships have been discovered in many places in the past, however, it still remains a mystery to people how ships are destroyed or abandoned in the midst of bodies of water. Today, a huge ship was found in the Atlantic Ocean in Ballycotton, a coastal village in County Cork, Ireland.
In 2020, the ship ran aground on rocks in Ireland after an engine failure. After being beached in Storm Dennis, the ghost ship is now half ashore in Ballycotton, Cork.
An explorer and photographer has now shared the images inside the rusty hull of the merchant ship MV Alta and shared them on his Tik Tok handle. The images captured by the photographer show the intensity of the waves lapping against the crumbling hull.
According to a Daily Star report, the photographer climbs aboard the rusty boat to show the condition inside. It shows that the pulleys and ropes used in the ship have now been left on the deck. He then continues by showing the ladders and the doors of the ship which have been very rusty. From a very wide angle, the explorer shows the structure and position of the ship on the rocks. Few holes and the unstable condition of the ship can be seen in his video.
Explorer uploaded the footage to the Tik Tok video sharing app on June 5, and the clip has been viewed nearly 18,000 times.
So far, no one has claimed ownership of the MV Alta. According to reports, she sailed around the ocean without a crew for over 18 months before she ran aground.
The Irish government will have to spend up to € 10million (£ 8.6million) to remove the 77-meter vessel, but it is unlikely to do so as the vessel has been damaged and the scrap damaged would not offset the cost of withdrawal. . It looks like the boat will be left on the rocks to disintegrate further.
