Shipwreck from 1800s Found in Indian Ocean

A search crew in the Indian Ocean discovers a shipwreck that could be 200 years old. This is a sonar image of the shipwreck taken during the search.

Crews found the ship's remains off of the West Australian coast last month.

Experts say the ship is likely made of steel and iron... and dates from the turn of the 19th century.
