Titanic photo shows evidence of human remains

After all the hype about the 100th anniversity of the Titanic Disaster we are reminded about what the cost was. The Titanic, laying on the bottom of the ocean is still a grave.

A newly released photo from the North Atlantic site of the shipwrecked RMS Titanic shows evidence of human remains, federal officials are saying.

In observance of the 100th anniversary of the ship's sinking, a 2004 image was reissued to the public in an uncropped version, which shows a coat and boots buried in the mud at the site two-and-a-half miles below the ocean's surface, where the legendary passenger liner now lies.

The pressures at the depth at which the Titanic lies is too great for a human body to remain recognizable and after 100 years has would have disappeared. The shoes mark the spot where the remains have lain but the century since the disaster has removed them. They remain now only as silent grave stones.
