Lost WWII ship found after 76 years.

March 8, 2018

The wreck of a US aircraft carrier that was sunk during World War Two has been found off the coast of Australia.

The USS Lexington was found 3km underwater in the Coral Sea.

The ship was lost in the Battle of the Coral Sea, fought with Japan from 4-8 May 1942.

The US Navy said 216 crew members died after the ship was attacked. More than 2,000 others were rescued.

The Battle of the Coral Sea is considered a key moment in halting Japan’s advance in the Pacific during the war.

The ship will not be retrieved because the US Navy considers it to be a war grave.
