Chevrolet Silverado pickups two years later got out of the oceanApril 18, 2020
A pair of Chevrolet Silverado pickup trucks, which drowned there two years ago, were picked up from the ocean floor.
The Australian Maritime Safety Authority (AMSA) found 80 containers accidentally dropped from a YM Efficiency cargo ship 25 kilometers off the coast of Australia. The lifted containers were delivered to the Port of Newcastle for waste treatment and opened in a special room where their contents were first discovered.
In nine containers discovered during the second week of cargo rescue, interior items, plastics, scooters, tires and two new Chevrolet Silverado trucks were found.
It is known that two years ago pickups were sent aboard the ship from the United States to Australia, where they were expected to rearrange the steering wheel on the left side. The cost of each pickup truck with a Duramax diesel engine at that time, taking into account transport costs, was 150 thousand Australian dollars.
“Obviously, the cars did not bear the fall to the bottom. The windows are broken – there has been water inside all two years, so everything has decayed, ”the AMSA representative commented on the find. All materials, as well as others that may be saved in the future, will be processed and turned into scrap metal, including metal containers and trucks.
