Paragraph 1

It was sunk by the Japanese on October the 25th, 1944 during the Battle of Samar in the Philippine Sea. The wreck now sits on the floor at a depth of around 6,456 metres. The crew managed to go down to that incredible depth and darkness and map and film the shipwreck. They filmed the ship from a built submersible that can deal with the of the deep ocean.
