Over 500 years has passed since Christopher Columbus abandoned his flagship, Santa Maria and left 39 unlucky crew members on the shore of Haiti to fend for themselves while Columbus made his way back to Spain on the Nina. The Pinta was in a different location at the time and there was no more room on the Nina for those 39. When Columbus returned to the spot the following year, all he found was a burned settlement and no survivors. Now, a man named Barry Clifford believes he has found the Santa Maria off the coast of Haiti. He was able to find it after discovering the burned settlement of Columbus' left behind party. Clifford says that he actually photographed the wreckage a decade ago but didn't put the pieces together until recently. He has a History Channel crew with him filming the recovery process.
