Wreckage believed to be of cargo ship El Faro located: U.S. officials

Wreckage believed to be of the cargo ship El Faro, which was lost off the Bahamas along with its 33 crew members during Hurricane Joaquin, was discovered on Saturday at a depth of 15,000 feet (4,572 meters), U.S. officials said in a statement.

El Faro disappeared on Oct. 1 while en route from Jacksonville, Florida, to Puerto Rico and sank after the captain reported a "hull breach" and said a hatch had blown open.
