Mummified Sailor Found Piloting Ghost Ship

Fishermen in the Philippines found the ‘ghost ship’ on Thursday, in seas off the southern island of Mindanao. Last seen in 2009, this sailor just made his latest and final appearance. His mummified remains, preserved by the salt and dry winds are in incredibly good condition. The reason for his death is unknown but investigators are working as we speak.
