Subsea images and video released as part of NTSB public docket on investigation into the sinking of U.S. cargo ship El Faro.

Underwater video and images of the sunken cargo ship EL Faro have been released by the U.S. National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB) as part of its continuing investigation into the vessel’s sinking in the Atlantic Ocean in October.

The docket opened by NTSB includes nine underwater images of El Faro wreckage on the seafloor, as well as more than 47 minutes of video from CURV-21, the remotely operated vehicle used to document the wreckage and debris field. Excerpts from that video are available on the NTSB’s YouTube channel.

The U.S. flagged ship, owned by Sea Star Line, LLC, and operated by TOTE Services, went missing on October 1 during Hurricane Joaquin and was located on October 31 in about 15,000 feet of water in the vicinity of its last known position near Crooked Island, Bahamas. Twenty-eight U.S. crewmembers and five Polish workers were on board.
