Bermuda Triangle earned its terrifying reputation by swallowing countless ships and airplanes, leaving no trace behind. But recently, the Bermuda Triangle has added another mystery to its record: Cuban coast guards came across a ship that had gone missing more than 90 years ago!

- It was November 29, 1925, when the S.S. Cotopaxi left Charleston, South Carolina, and headed for Havana, Cuba, carrying a big load of coal and 32 crew members.

- On May 18, the Cuban coast guards announced that they’d come across a ship that wasn’t answering their calls. To tell you the truth, even at first sight, the ship looked bizarre. Rusty and run-down, it seemed to drift mindlessly, without any destination in mind.

- The mysterious finding brought more questions than answers. If S.S. Cotopaxi sank almost 9 decades ago, how did it reappear on the surface? What happened to the crew, and how did they disappeared without a trace?

- Over centuries, there have been so many mysterious disappearances in that area that the chances are high that you'll find one or two ships that fell victim to the infamous Triangle. Maybe it’ll be the Patriot, a passenger schooner that left Charleston, South Carolina, on December 30, 1812, and headed for New York City.

- The Bermuda Triangle had already gained popularity in the 15th century when Christopher Columbus documented weird compass readings and bizarre lights in the area. Its nickname, "Hurricane Alley," speaks for itself.

- As for airplanes, probably the most inexplicable disappearance happened on December 5, 1945, and got the name "The Lost Patrol." Flight-19 was the code name for 5 bomber planes that flew from the naval base in Florida on a training flight.

- Well, no doubt, it all looks very suspicious, and the notoriety of the Bermuda Triangle might be well-earned, but think of this. The area of the Bermuda Triangle varies from 500,000 to 1,510,000 square miles, depending on the person describing the anomalous zone.
