Shipwreck in Chlorakas, Cyprus


Check out this awesome drone video of a famous shipwreck off the Mediterranean island of Cyprus, compliments of contributor and pilot Lego.  It's the MV Demetrios II, and it's situated near the Paphos Lighthouse on the western end of the island.  The vessel, which was registered in Honduras, ran aground in March, 1998 while carrying a load of timber to Greece.  The entire crew was rescued without injury.  A post-wreck inquiry determined that the papers of some of the crew members were not authentic.
