FL SUNKEN TREASURE-VO IN PLASMA-SS-DISSOLVE


THIS IS INCREDIBLE!

A FLORIDA MAN LITERALLY STRUCK GOLD WHEN HE UNEARTHED A "PRICELESS" RELIGIOUS ARTIFACT FROM THE BOTTOM OF THE ATLANTIC OCEAN.

THE SUNKEN TREASURE WAS DISCOVERED AT THE SITE OF A SHIPWRECK THAT HAPPENED NEARLY 300 YEARS AGO OFF THE COAST OF FORT PIERCE.

REPORTER JOHN DZENTIS SHOWS YOU WHAT THEY'VE FOUND. Return to index of stories...


FL SUNKEN TREASURE-PKG


S/U: For hundreds of years, it's been on the ocean floor. These treasure hunters have found gold coins, necklaces, but they've never found anything quite like this."

"It's almost too much to be honest with you."

BROUGHT TO TEARS…BY THE FIND OF HIS LIFE.

"I'm still on top of the wave, I haven't come down yet."

RICK SCHMITT HAS BEEN TREASURE HUNTING SINCE HE WAS FOURTEEN. THIS WAS THE MOMENT HE'S ALWAYS DREAMED OF.

HIS FAMILY WAS OFF THE COAST OF FORT PIERCE HUNTING FOR SPANISH TREASURE…IT WAS HIS SON…WHO SPOTTED A GLINT OF GOLD….

IT WAS THE MISSING PIECE…

FROM A MYSTERY ARTIFACT FOUND IN 1989.

"I pretty much knew what it was right away, nothing's ever looked like that before. It could only be the missing piece."

FOR DECADES, ARCHAEOLOGISTS THOUGHT THE ARTIFACT WAS SOME SORT OF PICTURE FRAME FROM THE LATE 1600'S.

NOW COMPLETE, IT'S BELIEVED TO BE A PYX, A HOLY VESSEL USED BY A HIGH RANKING CATHOLIC CHURCH OFFICIAL TO CARRY THE EUCHARIST.

IT MIGHT BE THE BIGGEST SCORE OF THEIR TREASURE HUNTING CAREER,

BUT THE SCHMITT FAMILY ISN'T READY TO QUIT.

"We keep going, you don't stop when you're hot. You don't do that, if you ever play cards before you don't stop when you're on a roll."

IN SEBASTIAN, JOHN DZENITIS, WPBF 25 NEWS. Return to index of stories...

NOW AN NBC-2 UPDATE ON A STORY WE FIRST BROUGHT YOU YESTERDAY ---

IN JUST A FEW WEEKS, ANOTHER GROUP OF COLLEGE STUDENTS WILL BE WALKING ONTO CAMPUSES ACROSS THE COUNTRY.

BUT ACCORDING TO WASHINGTON LAWMAKERS - ONE IN FIVE OF ALL FEMALE UNDERGRADS WILL BE THE VICTIM OF A SEXUAL ASSAULT.

LEGISLATION - JUST INTRODUCED - AIMS TO CHANGE THAT.

THE ACT CALLS FOR NEW RESOURCES ON CAMPUSES - LIKE SPECIALLY TRAINED COUNSELORS - FOR STUDENTS WHO SAY THEY'VE BEEN SEXUALLY ASSAULTED.

IT ALSO REQUIRES MINIMUM TRAINING STANDARDS FOR CAMPUS PERSONNEL WHO ARE SUPPOSE TO INVESTIGATE THE CASES.

SOME UNIVERSITIES - WHEN STUDENT ATHLETES ARE ACCUSED OF ASSAULT - ALLOW THEIR ATHLETIC DEPARTMENTS TO CONDUCT THE INVESTIGATIONS.

THIS BILL WOULD ELIMINATE THAT PRACTICE.
