Shipwrecked Sherman Tanks Video

A video of several Sherman tanks lying on the sea bed has been making the rounds the past few days.  The video shows a scuba diver swimming over at least seven Sherman tanks.  These vehicles are from the shipwreck of the SS Empire Heritage located of the north coast of Donegal in Ireland in 70 meters of water.  SS Empire Heritage was a 15,000 steam tanker torpedoed in 1944 by German submarine U-482.  The ship took all 113 of its passengers down with it.  The location is a popular spot for divers due to the scattered tanks and other interesting debris.
