Mr. Blankenship said the camera and a surface monito were brought to the islan jast summer to help in th search. The camera was low ered through the shaft into chamber below a level of bed rock. It relayed a series of pic tures of what Mr. Blankenship said lie is certain are three chests, one with a handle or the end and a curved top, an< some logs. The discovery was made at a level 40 feet deeper than any previous searchers had gone. The most startling discov ery was a human hand, partly clenched and suspended in the water of the chamber. Mr Blankenship said the discov ery was confirmed by all his workers who viewed it on ths monitor. APPEARED SEVERED The hand, wUh flesh, had what appeared to be a slash across the back The mangled flesh suggestec the hand had either been torn or chopped from the wrist, he said. The search by Triton Alli- ance, a group of Canadian and United Sates business- men, is the latest of many carried out on this 128-acrc island, about 45 miles west o] Halifax in Mahone Bay. The frrst began in 1795 after a ship's block was discovered hanging from the limb of tree over a depression in the ground. Other discoveries made by Triton Alliance include a ser- ies of wharves around the is- land, some of which have been found to be up to 250 years old. Mr. Blankenship said the discoveries make him certain that "Oak Island isn't a myth anymore." Haveyou?
