‘Ghost ship’ washes ashore on infamous island during rough storm

Officials were at first bewildered when they came upon a mysterious ghost ship with no captain or crew on board that had washed ashore on a secluded island off the coast of Cambodia during an intense storm this week.

Three life jackets from the wreckage were spotted about 160 feet away from where the rusted, old shipping vessel ran aground on the rocky beach of Koh Tang Island Tuesday evening, officials told Cambodia News English.

Authorities with the Koh Tang Observation Force inspected the shipwreck and quickly scoured the shoreline for any signs of the ship’s occupants the following morning, but to no avail, an official with the Maritime Security Observatory told CNE.
