Abandoned Cargo Ship Found Drifting in the Mid-Atlantic
The Royal Navy ice patrol ship came across a strange ghost ship while in underway in the mid-Atlantic Ocean previously today.
The Royal Navy’s HMS Protector found the deserted vessel on August 30 as it cruised in the direction of the Bahamas to help with cyclone alleviation initiatives.
The staff aboard the vessel tried to reach the ship yet got no action in return.

The M/V Alta made headings after the united state Coast Guard saved its 10 staff participants that were stranded aboard the impaired ship for nearly 20 days as well as running reduced on food as well as water. The Coast Guard claims it was at first alerted on September 30, 2018 that the 250-foot Tanzanian- flagged freight ship was provided impaired while transiting from Greece to Haiti, as well as the staff was incapable to make repair services.
