Ghost of two sailors who were buried at sea
This image was taken in 1924, when James Courtney and Michael Meehan, crew members of the S.S. Watertown, were killed by gas fumes. The two sailors were buried at sea off the Coast of Mexico. For several days after. the ghostly faces of the sailors were clearly seen by other members of the crew in the water following the ship. The ship’s captain, Keith Tracy, took six photos, then locked the camera and film in the ship’s safe. When the film was processed in New York, five of the exposures showed nothing but sea foam. But the sixth showed the ghostly faces of the dead seamen. The negative was checked by the Burns Detective Agency and revealed no tampering.
